Already on sale in the U.S., Canada and Japan, the devices is now set for release in other markets from Aug 28 via Microsoftstore.com, various Surface retail partners, and Authorized Device Resellers.

While the device is generally regarded as much-improved in comparison to earlier generations – a lighter, slimmer frame helps – actual sales numbers are still a bit of a mystery.
