Microsoft presents Surface 3 tablet computer

Microsoft has officially presented the latest Surface tablet computer that quite logically goes by the name of Surface 3. The new tablet computer comes with improved specs and measures 267 x 187 x 8.7 mm.

The Surface 3 weighs 622 grams and includes a quad-core Intel Atom Cherry Trail X7-Z8700 processor on 14 nm technology that runs at 1.6 GHz (2.4 GHz Turbo) and has built-in Intel HD Graphics. The chip has TDP of just 2 watts and makes almost no heat when operating. In addition the tablet has a 10.8-inch sensor display at 1920 x 1280 pixel resolution, 2 GB or 4 GB of DDR3 SDRAM (depending on model), 64 GB or 128 GB of internal memory (again depending on model), a microSD card slot for expansion, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a USB 3.0 port as well as mini DisplayPort and microUSB ports. The built-in battery provides up to 10 hours of operation in video playing mode.

The new Microsoft Surface 3 includes a tablet stand and has support for various other devices including the thin Microsoft Type Cover keyboard and Surface Pen stylus. The tablet runs Windows 8.1 64-bit but customers can also order the tablet with Windows 8.1 Pro. In both cases the OS can be later upgraded to Windows 10. The tablet is expected on May 5 this year. A bit later a 4G LTE version will also be made available. As to pricing the Wi-Fi-only version of the Surface 3 will sell for USD 499 and up.
