Surface retail availbility in UK retail stores - from the 15/Dec

I was waiting to see if The Verge said anything about this, but they didn't.
However, John Lewis now stocks the Surface both online and in their retail stores across the UK.

John Lewis is one big retailer bucking the trend, their sales are up and they're generally well regarded, their tech section is usually well staffed too! Hopefully this is good news, but one would have thought PC World/Currys would have been the retail partner.
