In the wee hours of this morning I learnt that many shipments of the Microsoft RT Surface have been delayed – now it seems that the bulk of devices will not turn up until around the 2nd of November.

And it doesn’t seem like this has been limited to a specific geography – with people from America and Canada reporting the same notifications. Oddly, it seems to bring it all in line with the Australia shipping details.

Even more oddly, the Microsoft Store (awful design by the way) still indicates that shipping is 1 to 2 weeks – one week puts it on the 26th (launch day), and two puts it on the 2nd November. I wander which is right.

UPDATE: A further update from Microsoft Store indicates that the November 2nd updated date was sent out in error. Its not clear if this is just in error to UK purchases, or if it was the same mistake across the board ...
