Don't-Miss Windows Tablet Stories
Microsoft's Surface 3 is the first device announced with Intel's Atom chip code-named Cherry Trail. So what does it all mean?
The Transformer Book Chi starts at $399 for a 10-inch screen, and $699 for the 12-inch model
As expected, Microsoft has launched a slightly smaller, significantly cheaper Surface 3 that ditches Windows RT.
Microsoft believes that screens smaller than 10 inches aren't used by 'professionals,' so don't expect it to charge for editing and viewing Office documents. Oh, and the Surface Pro mini -- probably dead.
Cool new features on the horizon include power-sipping chips and the Hello authentication technology.
Phones with screens up to 8 inches diagonally? Tablets as small as 7 inches? Microsoft sets some broad, overlapping spec ranges for mobile devices, especially Windows 10 for phones.
IDC says the market share for Windows will grow as global shipments for tablets slows down in the coming years.
From now until March 8, you can trade an old Surface for up to $650 in credit toward a new Surface Pro 3.
