Surface Pro 3 sold out, now that’s a phrase you don’t hear all too often. Microsoft’s newest slate is a darn good tablet, it’s a darn good device, period. And it’s selling very well too.
Redmond provided a status update of sorts on the official Surface blog.
According to the company, the Surface Pro 3 is sold out almost everywhere, even in the international markets where Microsoft expected big demand. But nothing to fear, though, the technology titan is shipping more units soon.
Microsoft points to limited supplies in countries like Australia, China and Germany as proof that the Surface Pro 3 is selling like hotcakes:
“Due to the response, Surface Pro 3 is in limited supply in some markets. Given the interest that we saw as part of our US launch, retailers ordered what we thought was a healthy amount of Surface Pro 3s for these new markets. It turns out that we didn’t ship enough.
At some retailers in Australia, Surface sold out by lunchtime on launch day. In China, retailers are sold out of the Core i5 and i7 models. And devices are hard to come by in Germany, New Zealand, Korea, and at one of the largest retailers in the United Kingdom.”
The company’s most advanced tablet to date, the 12-inch Surface Pro 3 launched in several international markets towards the end of August.
Available in configurations ranging from Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 to up to 8GB of RAM and a maximum of 512GB of solid state storage, the top of the range model of the Surface Pro 3 touches the dizzying heights of $2,000 in the United States.
