Surface Pro 2 buyers who preorder the 256GB or 512GB editions may not receive the tablet for another two months.

Set to launch on October 22, the new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets have been up for preorders since September 24 . The shipping times for certain models found at Microsoft's online store have fluctuated since then. The latest estimates indicate that the 64GB Surface Pro 2 will ship by October 21, while the 128GB version will ship by October 25.

But the 256GB and 512GB flavors both display a ship date of December 15, pointing to a shorter supply of those two models.

The Surface 2, meanwhile, is available in two capacities -- 32GB and 64GB, both of which are slated to ship by October 25.
