Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 goes on sale in 25 new markets

PanARMENIAN.Net - Microsoft's 12-inch Surface Pro 3, goes on sale in 25 new markets, expanding its so-far limited availability beyond Canada, Japan, and the U.S., according to ZDNet.

Just over two months after the Surface Pro 3's June 20 U.S. launch, Microsoft has expanded the availability of its new Intel-based i3, i5, and i7 tablets across the Asia Pacific and Europe, bringing its total number of markets up to 28.

New markets in the Asia Pacific region include Australia, China, Hong Kong, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. In Europe, the device is going on sale in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.

Microsoft also reaffirmed its Surface Pro 3 docking station will be available in all 28 markets. It's been available for pre-order for sometime, and will be generally available from Sept 12.

The docking station offers three USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports for hooking in external monitors, keyboard, mouse, printer, speakers, and so on, as well as an Ethernet port, 3.5mm audio connection and a security lock. The item was already available on pre-order in the UK for a hefty £164.99, compared to the $199.99 price tag in the U.S.

The expansion comes days after Microsoft assured US customers of the i7 edition Surface Pro 3 that it had a fix on the way for an overheating problem affecting some a “small number” of the devices.
