news US technology giant Microsoft announced this morning that its Surface Pro 3 tablet — unveiled in New York overnight — would start shipping in Australia from the end of August, with Microsoft itself, Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi to sell the unit for prices starting from AU$979.
Microsoft is billing the Surface Pro 3 as an integrated device that can replace a laptop. It features a 12″ display (most tablets feature a display several inches smaller), a “continuously adjustable kickstand”, improvements to processing power (featuring various Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors) and upgraded cameras. The unit weighs 798 grams.
The Surface Pro 3 also comes with Microsoft’s all-new Surface Pen, cased in aluminum and with 256 levels of pressure sensitivity for a “smooth and precise writing and drawing experience”. Microsoft said this morning that the pen looks and feels like a real fountain pen. Microsoft has also produced a new, larger version of its Type Cover with an improved trackpad experience. The cover can be paired with the tablet so that the Surface Pro 3 delivers laptop-like functionality.
The Surface Pro 3 will be available in a number of different configurations, including Intel’s Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, with storage space starting at 128GB and ranging up to 512GB, and with RAM available being either 4GB or 8GB. Continue…
