Microsoft Corp. today announced that beginning late March the rollout of Surface will continue, bringing Surface RT media tablet and Surface Pro professional tablet on new markets. The world’s largest software company did not reveal pricing or exact launch-dates for its Surface slates.

Starting late March, the consumer-oriented Surface with Windows RT operating system will be available in Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan. The business-targeted Surface Pro with Windows 8 Pro OS will emerge for sale in Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the United Kingdom in the coming months.

“We are eager to see people and businesses in more countries get a chance to experience this new category of devices. Surface is the best of a tablet and a PC,” said Panos Panay, corporate vice president of Microsoft Surface business unit at the company.

Even though Microsoft claims that the demand for Surface-series tablets in the U.S. is exceeding expectations and is therefore making the slates available in various retail chains in addition to Microsoft own stores, the company has never publicly revealed the number of Surface tablets it had sold.

Microsoft Surface RT costs starting from $499, whereas the Surface Pro starts at $899.
