Microsoft Surface Pro 3: all new features
Microsoft has just taken the wraps off its brand new Surface Pro 3, one of the most powerful tablets out there, but there is much more to it than just the specs. Microsoft has actually focused on making the Surface Pro 3 a cross-over device that can be used to replace the combination of two devices (a tablet and a laptop) with just itself. To achieve that goal the company has redesigned the Surface Pro Type Cover (that also works as a keyboard) to make it much steadier and improve the typing experience to be similar to that on a laptop.

Not just that, the kickstand that allows you to have the Surface Pro 3 stand up-right without having to hold it with your hands all the time (like most other tablets), can now move freely up to 150 degrees, while previously there were only 2 pre-defined angles for it.

Moreover, the Pro 3 also gets more features for the built-in Surface Pen that allows you start taking notes right away, with a click of a button on the stylus. This kind of little details are what Microsoft hopes will make their new tablet a true work and play solution. What do you think, will it succeed?
