Microsoft will release the Surface Book to its first two retailers – JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman – later this month.
The retail giants will also be the first to get their hands on the Surface 3 4G LTE and the Microsoft Band 2. Sports apparel retailer Rebel Sport will also be selling the Band 2.
Surface Book (starting at $2,299) and Surface 3 4G LTE (starting at $979) will be available from the retail stores on 28 January. Microsoft Band 2 starts at $379 and will be available from 21 January.
Surface Book launched in November as an exclusive to Microsoft’s flagship Sydney store or online ordering alongside the Surface Pro 4 and Microsoft Band 2.
Microsoft made the Surface Book available to Authorised Surface Resellers in Australia in December, however, it is yet to announce when the Surface 3 4G LTE will become available to the wider channel.
JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman were also the first two commercial retailers to get their hands on Surface products when channel sales were opened up in late 2013.
