Last month it was reported that the online Microsoft Store had sold out of most Surface 2 tablets one week prior to Christmas. It was unclear why the company was struggling to meet demand, that too in a lucrative period such as the holiday season. Most models have actually been sold out online for a few weeks now, just one model of both Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablet was available during this time. It appears that Microsoft has now been able to ease up supply once again as most Surface 2 models are now back in stock.
Right now, customers can purchase the previously sold out 32GB and 64GB models of the Surface 2 tablets through the online Microsoft Store. 64GB Surface Pro 2 is back in stock with the 512GB model, but still the 128GB and 256GB models remain out of stock, so does the 32GB original Surface RT. When Microsoft was contacted late last year to elaborate on these apparent stock shortages, the company only said that it was actively working with its manufacturing teams to get Surface tablets in customers’ hands as soon as possible. It hasn’t revealed what exactly is the problem that’s keeping various Surface 2 models out of the online store. Those who have been waiting for any of the models mentioned above can head to the Microsoft Store website right now to purchase, who knows when they might run out of stock again.
