According to media reports, the Microsoft on Monday announced the Surface Pro Tablet PC would be landing the European market at the second quarter of this year, and the price is about $1,170.

Microsoft Germany branch CEO Christian Illek didn’t disclose the Surface Pro euros accurate price in a press conference, but the price would be comparable to the U.S in dollar terms.

The price of $ 1170 seems to be much higher than the $899 Surface Pro price in the United States, because the European price usually contains about 20% value-added tax, the price of electronic products 30% higher in Europe than in the United States is not uncommon. The U.S. prices do not usually include the local business tax.

Microsoft said, except Germany, in the next few months the Surface Pro will also visit Australia, China, France, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the United Kingdom market.
