If you've recently tried shopping for a Surface 3 tablet, you may have noticed that your options have dwindled. Over at the Microsoft Store, the only SKU that's in stock is the model with 64GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, and Wi-Fi + 4G connectivity. The other three models are sold out and it's anyone's guess if they'll be back in stock before Microsoft ends production altogether by the end of the year. "Since launching Surface 3 over a year ago, we have seen strong demand and satisfaction amongst our customers. Inventory is now limited and by the end of December 2016, we will no longer manufacture Surface 3 devices," Microsoft said in a statement regarding Surface 3's availability.There's an option...

Earlier this week, we learned that Microsoft’s Surface 3 LTE would be heading to AT&T’s network. And right on schedule, AT&T has opened up sales of the tablet which is available in a 64GB configuration (which we already knew about) and a 128GB configuration (which was news to us). Those that purchase a Surface 3 LTE at full price from a Microsoft Store or authorized retail partners will receive an unlocked device that can be used either on AT&T or T-Mobile’s wireless network in the United States (unlocked versions will be made available in late August). Speaking of T-Mobile, the Surface 3 LTE will also be available to T-Mobile business customers through the company’s @Work channel.... Read more...
Perhaps Microsoft and AT&T didn’t want the announcement to get lost in the hoopla surrounding the launch of Windows 10 next Wednesday, but the 4G LTE version of the Surface 3 tablet is set to bow this Friday, July 24th. Microsoft first announced the Surface 3 with LTE back in late March, and told us at the time that the device would ship before the end of the summer. The Surface 3 with LTE is tied to AT&T’s network and will be priced at $599. That price will get you an Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a 10.8-inch 1080p display. Interestingly enough, opting for a two-year contract won’t knock much off the price of the tablet, as you’ll still pay a hefty... Read more...
Microsoft's third iteration of the Surface Pro was a monumental improvement over the first two incarnations. For many, the third time really was the charm. It was powerful enough to replace most laptops, and versatile enough to serve as two device types without major compromises on either side. A year later now, and Microsoft presents us with the third iteration of the standard Surface. You know, the one without the "Pro" dangling from the end. It's cheaper, slimmer, and toned down, but it's also aimed at a broader swath of consumers. The base Surface 3 checks in at an alluring $499, but that's probably not the machine you'll want. The upgraded spec, which gets 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage,... Read more...
Just over a month following its official unveil, Microsoft's Surface 3 is already a belle of the tablet ball as far as business is concerned, running Windows 8.1 and offering easy IT integration and robust Enterprise-class security. And with the company's release yesterday of a new driver update designed to bring the process of Surface 3 mass system deployment in line with that of the larger and faster (and more expensive) Surface Pro 3, the attraction is set to grow deeper.  According to a Microsoft blog post, "The update – which is available now -- improves the mass deployment process, broadens the range of enterprise-level features, and helps bring the Surface...

The reports were true, and it looks as though Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 is about to get a new baby brother. After Microsoft quietly discontinued the Surface 2 earlier this year, we were eager to see what Microsoft had in store for its successor. Some thought that maybe Microsoft would just leave the entry-level Windows tablet market to third-party OEMs, but as we are seeing today, that is clearly not the case. So we present to you the Surface 3, a tablet that will slot in under its Surface Pro 3 both in size an in performance. The dominant feature of the Surface 3 is of course its 10.8-inch 1920x1280 display that now features a 3:2 ratio compared to 16:9 for the Surface 3. Under the hood, an... Read more...
