It appears, however, the Microsoft understated their own estimate, due to a difference between their production and final shipping units.
In reality, the tablet will have 89.7GB of free space, a figure that is not significantly higher but is certainly an upgrade.
Says Verge: "A source inside Microsoft tells me the employee who confirmed the numbers did so using pre-production machines that contained different disk images and debug code that is different from final shipping units that will be on sale beginning this weekend."
The same deal is existent for the 64GB model, which will actually ship with 29GB of usable space, compared to Microsoft's own 23GB estimate.
