Surface Pro 3 retail sales higher than expected, says Microsoft
Unexpectedly, the Surface Pro 3 is about to become a really successful product. According to Microsoft, dealers can’t manage to carry out all the deliveries for the 12-inch Windows 8.1 tablet by customers.
In August the market of the product was enlarged with 25 more countries around the world. In some regions, however, the ordered units were not enough and retailers have run out of availability. A statement by Microsoft says that Surface Pro 3 has gained population mostly in Australia, China, Germany, The UK, Korea and New Zealand where the product is already hard or impossible to be found. However, Microsoft adds that the company is working on supplying these retailers with more units in the next two weeks.
Today Microsoft also extends the market for the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station to all the countries where the tablet is being in sale.
The Surface Pro 3 is available in five versions according to processor and capacity. The cheapest model features an Intel Core-i3 processor, 64GB, and is priced at $799. The most expensive Pro 3 configuration has a Core-i7 processor inside and 256GB of storage, and a price of $1949. Type Cover keyboard is being sold separately for $130.
