Online orders of the Microsoft Surface RT tablet have been delayed by a week in the UK, with deliveries now coming on November 2.
The Verge reports that stock of the Windows 8 tablet may be being held at UK custom, meaning a slip from the originalon sale date of October 26.
Those who pre-ordered the device have received an email confirming the delay:
“The release date for the preorder product has changed the product listed below will now be available on 02 November 2012.”
Beyond the delay for UK buyers, those in the US have snapped up all available pre-order stock and the 32GB and 64GB versions of the ARM-based tablet are now listed as “sold out.”
Those ordering Stateside now face a three week delay while supplies are replenished.
