Microsoft just announced the newest addition to their Surface tablet series, the Surface 3. The new Surface 3 will retail for $499, making it much more affordable than its predecessor, the Surface Pro 3.
The new Surface 3 will be similar in build but come in a much smaller package. It will sport a 10.8 inch screen compared to the larger 12 inch screen in the Pro 3. The new LCD touch screen will maintain same 3:2 aspect ratio and stunning visual appeal.
It will feature both a front (3.5 megapixels) and rear (8 megapixels) camera enabling you to shoot full 1080p video. The battery will last about 10 hours and charge using a standard micro USB adapter. It will also feature the kickstand and keyboard case making it possible to use it like a standard laptop.
Brad Reifler (Linkedin.com) believes that the coolest thing about Surface tablets is the fact that you can run full Windows applications like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop. If you’re a Windows buff, you will definitely choose a Surface tablet over an Android or iPad.
The new Surface 3 will also come with the well received pen that so many have grown to love. It’s great for taking notes or creating your own works of art.
