The Surface 3 came after the Surface Pro 3, and has gotten a lot of positive feedback from reviewers and users. It didn’t have the cost of the Surface Pro 3, and came with lower specs, but it works. On Monday, Microsoft started bringing Surface 3 Tablets with 4G LTE to the US.
The combination of built-in LTE on the Surface 3 could definitely separate itself from competitors, and give users reasons to purchase the cell enabled Surface 3. It’s being made available through a number of national retailers, and rolling them out globally as well.
Where In The US?
The Surface 3 Tablet with LTE started arriving at select retailers on July 24th, and come in two different versions. The 64GB and 128GB versions are available in Microsoft stores, authorized retailers, and national retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s, Staples, Target, and finally Walmart.
In the US, the Surface 3 with LTE is also being made available through AT&T, who is the national cell carrier for the unit. T-Mobile is going to carry it a week later, and bring it to customers on July 31. Verizon is supposed to carry the units, but no date has been announced through them.
Worldwide Support For Surface 3
The Surface 3 with 4G LTE is also being made available in France, Germany, Spain, and the UK. Those units are being sold quickly through the channels there, and users are finding the power of a full Windows tablet mixed with 4G LTE a huge hit. These units for businesses are a must buy.
The Surface 3 has an Atom X7 processor, sports a 10.8-inch screen, and comes with the keyboard and pen separately. The $599 price point isn’t scaring away customers either, and gives them a more powerful unit than the iPad in this range. They are selling and selling well globally.
While I have my Surface Pro 3, the Surface 3 with 4G LTE is awesome. It’s a great unit, and worth buying. Have yours yet?
