The launch comes hot on the heels of a recent partnership deal that was struck between Microsoft and popular Chinese retailer Tmail. The seller will launch a new Tmail store that will sell over 50 Microsoft products including Surface, Office and Windows Phones.

 

This is all part of Microsoft's "phased" roll-out plan for Surface Pro, which will see the Windows 8 tablet arrive in other foreign markets in the coming months. Pricing on Surface Pro in China has not yet been released and no word on pricing for the other Microsoft has been released either.
