Earlier this week Microsoft announced that they would sell the Surface RT in various retail and online stores in the US and Australia, however there was no mention on whether the UK would be getting the same treatment, until now that is as the company has now announced to Pocket-Lint that the tablet will be coming to John Lewis from Friday the 14th of December:

“Always first with the latest technology, John Lewis is delighted to announce that it will be the first high street retailer in the UK to offer the Microsoft Surface from the 14 December 2012 and with a two-year guarantee included at no extra cost.”

The Surface 32GB model with the BlackTouch Keyboard will set you back £479 or you can pick up the Surface 64GB with the same keyboard for the same price.
