Microsoft announced the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 last week at an event in New York City. The two devices, along with their new accessories, are due out on October 22th. Pre-orders started last Tuesday online and in-person. If you wanted to pre-order online you’d have to pay the full price of the device or accessory. However, if you did the pre-order in person at your local Microsoft Store you had to put at least $50 down to reserve your device.

Starting today, you can reserve your Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 without paying until you pick it up.

When it comes to consumer electronics and the retail space, Apple does a pretty good job dominating the spotlight. That’s not to say that Microsoft with isn’t doing a good job with the Microsoft Store, there just isn’t as many out there yet. Which is a shame, because if you’re lucky enough to be near a Microsoft Store you know how the experience of buying a PC is leaps and bounds better than elsewhere. The stores offer knowledgeable salespeople, quality hardware with no crapware, and some solid deals throughout the year.

Thankfully, you can take advantage of those deals and hardware online through the Microsoft Store. Or through the mobile app on Windows Phone, which just got updated today. Let’s check out what’s new.

Nothing like a deal to put us in a good mood. In case you didn’t know, Microsoft is planning to update its Surface line of products in a few short weeks. We’re expecting to see the Surface 2, follow up to last year’s Surface RT and the Surface Pro 2, which is the Haswell refresh of the Surface Pro. Those devices should be announced and available around the launch of Windows 8.1 on October 18th. But below you’re going to read about how you can turn in your old iPad to get at least $200 towards that new Surface.

One of the more hard to find accessories for the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the Wireless Charging Cover. You can pre-order them through Expansys or Amazon.com and there's no telling when (or if AT&T will carry the charging cover).  However, there is a ray of hope out there.  We aren't sure as to the when but the Microsoft Store is listing the charging cover and best we can tell it is ready to ship.

The Microsoft Store is only listing the black cover (comes in white and yellow as well) at a price of $39. Standard shipping is free and you'll have to pay local taxes.

A few days ago, we told you about Microsoft Stores doing a pre-order for the upcoming Lumia 1020 starting tomorrow, July 16th (one day before T-Mobile sells the Lumia 925, fancy that). If you did so, you were going to nab a $79 camera grip accessory for free so long as you do the whole two-year agreement thing.

We noted at the time that in the specifications it listed 32GB and 64GB versions, but we told you that was most likely a typo as only Telefonica (and their sub-carriers) are getting that coveted version. In other words, nothing to see here, please move on.
