Microsoft’s Surface Pro has arrived at a number of retail stores, ahead of the tablet’s release on February 9.

A number of technology blogs are reporting that the Intel-powered tablet can now be found at various retail stores, with Engadget suggesting that the device is already on show at select Staples and Best Buy stores across the U.S. and Canada.

CNET claims to have seen the tablet in action at Microsoft’s retail store in Century City, Los Angeles, and says that the tablet is now listed on Best Buy's website.

The Surface Pro will be available with 64GB ($899) or 128GB ($999) of memory and comes with 4GB of RAM and Intel’s Ivy Bridge processor. The tablet, however, comes without the optional Type Cover ($129) or pressure-sensitive Touch Cover ($109) keyboards.

Microsoft will launch the Surface Pro on February 9, and is to announce the 10.6-inch model at Best Buy’s Union Square store in New York the night before.

Industry analysts expect the Pro to fare better than the Surface RT, which runs Windows RT, although recent reports suggest that the 128GB and 64GB Surface Pro only come with 83GB and 23GB of memory, respectively.
