Microsoft’s Surface 3 Tablets are hitting stores in the US, starting today.
The device, with its 10.8-inch screen , comes in two, 64 GB and 128 GB, variants and boasts an Atom x7 processor under its hood. The entry-level tablet will require you to shell out $499, with keyboard and pen costing extra. Microsoft will also have SIMs from partner carriers at hand, and you can get the LTE version by paying $100 extra.
Microsoft is all praise about its latest device, and claims that it packs the “Power of a Laptop in a Tablet”.
Surface 3 has the looks and performance to turn heads. With its 10.8-inch screen and thin, light frame, it’s just the right size to slip under your arm or in your purse and take anywhere. Fancy a movie or some late-night gaming? With 10 hours of battery life, stellar sound, and an integrated Kickstand, Surface 3 is perfect for hands-free entertainment wherever you go.
The device will be available via various online retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Fry’s, Staples, Target and Walmart while they can be bought directly through AT&T — starting today — and T-Mobile –starting 31st of July. We have received no word as to when the device will go on sale through Verizon.
AT&T also has a scheme going under which, you can get hold of a brand new Surface 3 for $0 down payment and can opt to pay the balance in installments of $30 per month over a period of 20 months.
The Surface 3 tablets with 4G LTE had already been made available to business customers in countries like Germany, France and Spain, however this is the first time they will be put to test by the general public. Although, knowing Microsoft, the Tablet is likely to be as awesome as the company website claims it is.
