The Verge reports that the UK retailer Argos has been selling Microsoft’s Surface 2 to customers before the embargo date of October 22nd has passed. Apparently Argos were selling the Surface 2 as early as Friday October 18th, 4 days before the embargo, and the Verge was able to buy a Surface 2 from their nearest on Saturday October 19th.

Argos were only selling the Surface 2 (both 32 and 64GB models), not the Surface 2 Pro, Type Cover 2 or Touch Cover 2. Argos responded to the Verge story stating it was a mistake and that they had immediately withdrawn Surface 2 sales from their stores.

“We fully comply with embargos issued by our suppliers and have withdrawn the Microsoft Surface 2 from sale with immediate effect. We are working with Microsoft to investigate this error as a matter of urgency.”

The Surface 2, Surface 2 Pro, Type Cover 2 and Touch Cover 2 should all be made available from October 22nd.
