Microsoft launches Surface Pro3 in UAE
Dubai, June 10, 2014
Microsoft has announced the availability of Surface Pro 3, the lightweight tablet "that packs the power and performance of a laptop", for commercial customers only in the UAE.
"Surface Pro 3 is a tablet and a laptop: multiple processor, RAM and storage options intersect with a sleek design that, with a simple snap or click, transform the device from a perfectly balanced tablet to a full-functioning laptop and back again," said a statement.
Its 12-inch display and new, continuous kickstand provide the screen real estate and multiple viewing angles people need for multitasking. And the new Surface Pen — completely redesigned with form and function in mind — delivers a precise, luxurious drawing and note-taking experience with a single click of the pen, it said.
Samer Abu Ltaif, Microsoft Gulf’s regional general manager, said: “At Microsoft, we believe in empowering businesses and people to perform more in a mobile-first, cloud-first world. We have an obsession for empowering every individual and organization to do more and be more. That is what we at Microsoft are all about. This is what the unifying theme is for the company across everything that we do. Today’s announcement that Surface Pro 3 is now available in the UAE for commercial customers serves as the next step of our journey to empower organizations to do more. I am confident that Surface Pro 3, the tablet that can replace a user’s laptop, has the requirements to support the increasing mobility that UAE businesses require today.”
Surface Pro 3 features a 12-inch full HD display, 4th-generation Intel Core processor options, amazing click-in keyboards, and a multi-position kickstand that goes from movie mode to working mode and all the way to writing mode. Because it runs Windows 8.1 Pro, users can run the desktop software they rely on, including Microsoft Office, multitask with side-by-side windows, and use it at work.
"Surface Pro 3 delivers the best writing and drawing experience with Surface Pen included and an amazing new capability where with just a click of the pen, Surface launches a fresh page in OneNote, so you can capture your thoughts immediately," said the statement.
And it delivers big-screen entertainment anywhere with the larger, full HD screen, the kickstand, great speakers with Dolby Audio enhanced sound, and up to nine hours of Web-browsing battery life.
Pre Orders from the UAE are set to begin by mid-June and general availability in August for commercial customers only. The Authorized Device Resellers in the UAE are Alpha Data and Mideast Data Systems (MDS). - TradeArabia News Service
