Earlier today, Microsoft announced the Surface 3, an Intel Atom-based successor of the Surface 2. Come May, Microsoft will sell four versions of the tablet, and two of those models will be available directly from T-Mobile and Verizon in the US.
You guessed it, we’re talking about the Wi-Fi + 4G LTE models of the Surface 3. One will be available with 64GB of storage and 2GB of RAM while the other doubles the storage and RAM and capacities. Microsoft has listed these two models on its pre-order page and revealed that they will be available on June 26th, but haven’t announced the prices yet. Although it’s safe to assume that both T-Mobile and Verizon will subsidize the price along with a contract offering.
