Microsoft’s brand new Surface 3 typoslab is a smaller, simpler and cheaper version of its predecessor, the Surface Pro 3. And so, you might think that it was meant for a teen target audience, but you would be so wrong. The new Surface 3 is actually aimed at mass enterprise deployment.
This theory is based on Microsoft’s very own update that said it would support its “customers intending to do mass deployments into larger organizations”. So what kind of large organizations could they be talking about?
Since the Surface Pro 3 is clearly a grownup’s device, with a slick and sophisticated allure to it, it would only seem fair that it would be the Microsoft device marketed among big companies. But if you really think about it, the Surface 3 is not too shabby itself.
Let’s look at the numbers! The Surface 3 typoslab comes with a 10.8-inch 1080p display, a mini Display port, a 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, a microSD card reader, Bluetooth 4.0 and one USB 3.0 port. But most importantly, you can actually choose between two versions of memory: either 64GB storage and 2GB RAM or 128GB storage and 4GB RAM.
If you think about it, 128GB or even 64GB is enough storage for work related data. And if it’s not, you have a USB port and you can very easily pop in a external storage device to put your valuable records in safekeeping.
Furthermore, you have everything you need in terms of internet connection abilities and with 2GB RAM, you will be able to work acceptably. Not to mention if you choose the 4 GB RAM version, when you will clearly be all right.
The only thing that doesn’t quite fit into the whole big serious company scenario is the 10.8-inch display. In all fairness, it seems quite small to be used all day every day. But it very much depends on the profile of the companies involved.
If you don’t have to use the 10.8-inch typoslab all day long, then it might actually seem easier to work with something small for a short period of time. Moreover, if you’re on the move a lot for work, then the Surface 3 just might be the right device for you!
This is actually the key feature of the companies that Microsoft looks to make its mass deployment to. So get ready to see your mailman, electrician and plumber with the new Surface 3 in their hands.
It even has all the chances to take on the iPad and win, because the Surface 3 will come with full Windows support and Windows apps, that convey a higher mobility than the Apple version will ever be able to pull off. Also, the iPads are definitely pricier.
The Surface 3 goes for $499, which is acceptable for a miniature PC, because that’s what this new typoslab is actually, a light, small, easily accessible PC. And this makes harder, better, faster, stronger than its entire Apple competition.
It is not yet known where Microsoft intends to mass deploy its new product, but the cute little Surface 3 typoslab has all the right features to be the it item for all mobile workers. And if this goes right, then Microsoft is looking at some pretty good numbers in its upcoming quarters.
