Surface Pro Still on Target for January?

By Norman Chan

One store says January 26th.

CNet called various Microsoft Stores around the country to inquire about the release date of Microsoft's Surface with Windows 8 Pro tablet, and got one store to specifically identify January 26th for launch. Microsoft has previously said that the Surface Pro would launch around 90 days after the availability of Windows 8 (October 26th), and in November reiterated January as the launch month. My gut says we'll hear an official on-sale and pre-sale date next week during CES (which Microsoft will not be attending).
