Microsoft launches the Surface Pro 3 in 25 new markets

Microsoft launches the Surface Pro 3 in 25 new markets
Just as expected, Microsoft today announced that its Surface Pro 3 tablets are going on sale in 25 new markets around the world - in addition to the US, Canada and Japan, where the new Surface was released earlier this year. The official launch date for the Surface Pro 3 in the new markets is August 28 - so customers in countries like New Zealand, Australia, or Japan can already buy the tablet (though it’s still August 27 in the US as we type this).

Presented from the beginning as a tablet that can replace your laptop, the Surface Pro 3 runs Windows 8.1, and comes in various configurations powered by Intel i3, Intel i5, or Intel i7 processors. Prices start at $799 for the i3, 64 GB model, and go up to $1,949 for the i7 model with 512 GB of storage space.

In case you want the complete list of markets where the Surface Pro 3 is currently available (or will be available starting the next hours), here it is: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, 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, UK, and the US.

Back in July, Microsoft said that the Surface Pro 3 was selling faster than previous Surface slates, and the company probably expects sales to see a significant bump now that it’s launching it across the globe.
