The much-anticipated Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is dubbed as the tablet that can replace your laptop.
Today, Microsoft unveiled the tablet in Singapore and offered the local media an opportunity to experience the latest gadget from its stable of hardware products.
During the media interaction, the technology giant promised that this new tablet has all the power, performance and mobility of a laptop in an incredibly lightweight, versatile form.
The thinnest and lightest member of the Surface Pro family at 1.76 lbs (approximately 800g), the tablet features a large 2160 x 1440 2K colour-calibrated screen and 3:2 aspect ratio with multitouch input, so users are free to swipe, pinch and drag on it.
The improved optional Surface Pro Type Cover and more adjustable, continuous kickstand lets users transform their tablet to a laptop in a snap. The Surface Pro Type Cover features a double-fold hinge that enables users to magnetically lock it to the display’s lower bezel, so users can work comfortably on the lap.
The tablet also comes with an all-new Surface Pen, which looks and feel like an actual fountain pen, giving users a natural writing experience. A click of the digital pen opens OneNote; while a double click captures a screenshot of the screen. Users can also comfortably rest their palm on the screen while writing as its Palm Block technology prevents unintended inputs and marks.
Surface Pro 3 is currently available for pre-order only. It will be available for purchase by end August in 10 Asia Pacific markets, including Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, and Taiwan.
