Microsoft fans, let’s face it. When it comes to the industry of tablets and smartphones, the brand is yet working its way on top rather painfully. We just hope that with surfacing of Microsoft Surface 3 LTE is a means of redeeming the company name in this industry.
The design almost stays the same as its predecessor, a full-fledged microcomputer in compact features, confined in clean lines. Magnesium makes the weigh more solid which is a plus for a hybrid like Surface 3 instead of a mere tablet. The kickstand allows the face to stand up on its own allowing video watching more comfortable.
Stylus must be in for the second semester of this year as Microsoft endowed this tablet with one. We know about old-timer Sammy but Apple also went out with its iPad Pro. The stylus has its own price tag of $50 though it’s optional. You can get along with Surface 3 sans Stylus just fine but if you’re one for the joy of experiencing the modern pen, by all means try it!
To make it hybrid, you can choose to have a $130 Type Cover that also doubles as a protective layer to your tablet. The keys are magnificently soft to the touch and are backlit as well.
As the moniker clearly implies, Microsoft Surface 3 LTE has the capability to connect through 4G LTE connection. It also supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ b/ g/ n/ ac, and A-GPS with Glonass.
