Microsoft Surface coming to SA

Published by on Apr 17th, 2013, 2 Comments

The big news from today at TechEd Africa 2013 is that Microsoft SA can finally confirm that the Surface tablet will indeed come to South Africa.

Until now Microsoft’s first PC has not actually reached our shores, and there is quite a following of fans who want these machines in SA. The Surface comes in two flavours – a ARM based Windows RT version, and a “Pro” version running Intel Core i5 hardware.

The Surface has been praised for forward thinking design, but so far has not set any records in terms of sales. During a session on Consumerization of IT in Enterprise, Colin Erasmus mentioned that the Surface tablet will “hopefully” reach SA within the next few months.

Just after this presentation, SA’s Microsoft MD, Mteto Nyati, confirmed it:
