microsoft-surface-rtMicrosoft has announced that it is dramatically expanding the availability of the Surface RT tablet, effective immediately.

Neowin reports that the Surface RT tablets are already available at Best Buy’s site.

“Our plan has been to expand the retail presence for Surface after the first of the year. Based on interest from retailers, we are giving them the option to carry Surface with Windows RT even earlier,” said Steve Schueler, corporate vice president, Microsoft Retail Sales and Marketing.

Microsoft’s Windows 8 and Surface tablets have met with lukewarm reception, at best. Surface RT sales have additionally been hampered by limited availability.

    Windows has already had its chance to get people’s attention with the Surface RT tablets, and it blew it. They came out with something that’s confusing, underpowered and not even competitive. And by doing this, they’ve created a brand that’s stigmatized.

    This stigma is going to be something that Microsoft will have to fight when it releases the Surface Pro tablets.

      Microsoft, I bought a tablet computer at Best Buy recently–it was not your product, but it had your software on it. Well, I grew disgusted with it, and took it back, based on how intrusive the set-up questions were. Why in the fudgecicles do you need my birthday (required)? that’s none of your Grand Daddy business!!! No, microsoft, people are getting tired of big computing acting more like Big Brother than even the NSA!
