In a statement, the company explained that Surface has a large number of Enterprise customers who do business globally.

The company elaborated that these global companies “have been pushing it to expand into South Africa” and that now it is able to expand its global coverage for the Surface family of devices.

The most recent announcements of Surface products in the pipeline include Surface Go 2 (a 2 in 1 10 inch tablet-notebook hybrid), Surface Book 3, which Microsoft is billing as its “most powerful 13 and 15 inch notebooks to date, providing up to 50% more performance than Surface Book 2 and up to 17.5 hours of battery life;" Surface Headphones 2 and Surface Earbuds.
