I’m pretty pumped today, because Surface Pro 3 – the tablet that can replace your laptop – is now on sale at retail stores, online, and through authorized resellers in Canada and the United States. I’ve been using a Surface Pro 3 as my main machine for months now, and I know you’re going to love this new device.
Many of you have placed pre-orders for the new Surface, and those who ordered the Intel® Core™ i5 versions will be receiving them directly. Those who are interested in the Core i3 and Core i7 versions will remember that when we first announced the product we said these would be shipping “in August.“ Thanks to some great work by our team, I can confirm that, in this case, “in August” means August 1, which is when these versions will arrive in stores and at commercial resellers in Canada and the US.
By the end of August 2014, Intel® Core™i3, i5, and i7 versions of Surface Pro 3, as well as select new accessories, will become available for purchase in 26 additional markets: Australia, Austria, Belgium, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand and the United Kingdom.
I’ve had a lot of questions about Docking Station for Surface Pro 3 – particularly when it’s coming. The docking station will be available beginning Friday, August 15 in Canada and the United States, and you can pre-order it starting today in these markets through Microsoft Stores and other select retailers.
Those of us who have been using Surface Pro 3 for a while now have had the experience of a single device that is great for getting serious work done and being really creative, as well as for reading, watching and having fun. So get to a Microsoft Store, Best Buy, Staples, Tiger Direct or other Surface retailer today, or talk to your commercial reseller. You’re going to love your new Surface Pro 3.
