Microsoft Confirmed Tuesday that they will begin selling the Surface at retailers outside of their own Microsoft Stores this month.
The Surface has been available since October 26th but was only available from their own online store and from their brick-and-mortar and pop-up stores around the country. The fact that the Surface was only sold at these locations most likely greatly hindered initial sales of the device.
Not much detail about which retailers will sell the device are available at this moment.
