Microsoft Making It Easier for Customers to Try a Surface Tablet Before They Buy

by Reads (5,701)

The Microsoft Surface line of tablets has drawn huge amounts of attention. Those who are interested in buying one will have to head down to a Microsoft store. Fortunately, there will be more of these than there are now.

Microsoft SurfaceAt this point, the Surface is the best-known Windows 8 tablet, and there’s a good chance that this awareness will turn into lots of sales. But Microsoft is only going to offer this item in its own stores, whether retail or online. This means that those who want to try the device out before making a purchase will have to find a Microsoft store.

Problem is, there are only 20 of these scattered around the United States. That doesn’t give people many options to try before they buy.

But Microsoft is aware of the issue, and today announced that this fall it will be opening over 30 more stores around the country for the holiday season. And this is just the first round. The company said it plans to announce additional locations.
