We heard last week that Microsoft was going to begin selling its Surface tablet at big box retailers and the first such retailer has been revealed as Staples. Beginning today, you can walk into one of the office supplier's 1,900 retail locations in the U.S. and Canada and get your hands on the new tablet/mobile pc.

If you're considering getting a Surface, this is a big deal since previously the device could only be found in one of Microsoft's own retail stores, of which there are only a few dozen in the world.
