US $499 Surface RT sold out after one day of pre-orders

US $599 and $699 models still available


Despite its quite steep price, Microsoft's US $499 Surface RT model has been sold out after only one day of pre-orders. On the other hand US $599 and US $699 models are still available.

Of course, there is no info on how many units Microsoft actually had, but judging by the first day pre-order sale, Microsoft might just do well with its Surface RT tablet. The new date for pre-orders have been changed from October 26th to "within three weeks".

Microsoft's US $599 and US $699 Surface RT models are still up for grabs and both come with overpriced keyboard covers.

The real picture should be clear once these actually start to ship out and once Apple comes out with its own iPad mini that could easily turn the tide.
