Surface Pro 3 Docking Station Is Now Available For Pre-order From Microsoft

9

Microsoft today announced that Docking Station for Surface Pro 3 is now available for pre-order from Microsoft Store. Docking Station allows you to turn your Surface Pro 3 into a full-blown desktop PC, giving you easy access to your external monitors, keyboard, mouse, printer, speakers, and more. Microsoft also highlighted the improvements they have made over last generation Docking Station. For example, they have added more USB ports and many of them support USB 3.0. While you docked the SP2, the USB 3.0 port on the Surface  is still available for use when it is docked. Also, they have added Security Lock slot to it.

Docking Station features:

Instant office
Just click your Surface Pro 3 into the dock and go from tablet to full desktop PC in an instant. With an Ethernet port, Mini DisplayPort, and five USB ports (three USB 3.0, two USB 2.0) you can easily connect an HD monitor, wired network connection, audio system, full-size keyboard, mouse, printer, and more.

Video output
Extend your display to a larger screen. The mini DisplayPort connection delivers high-definition video resolution of up to 3840 x 2600 DPI.

Five USB ports
Boasting five USB ports (three USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0), you can transfer large files to an external drive, plug in a USB printer or headset, charge multiple accessories, and more.

Ethernet port
When you need the reliability of a wired network connection, the super-fast Ethernet connection offers data transfer rates up to 1 billion bits per second.

48-watt power supply
Quickly recharge your Surface battery while you work, so you can hit the road or the halls with a fully charged device.

    Wow! A preorder for something that should have been available upon release.

      My thoughts exactly. Why MS cannot get its act together is beyond me. Hint: MS you launch a product you also launch all of its accessories together.

        Because MS does not do hardware well, never has, never will. They need to just stop and put resources into things they do well Software and Services.

          I think that’s a bit harsh… their hardware peripherals are quite good, Keyboards/Mice etc – remember they are only finding their way into tablets, etc. The Surface products are taking hold, probably not as bullish as MS would like but with SP3 I’d say they are on the right track. They just needed confirmation of that by the market. Seems as though they are getting it and the accessories should start coming with more confidence.
          Also remember they have changed their business direction, which includes hardware and more. Gotta start somewhere. I’d rather see them be wise with build and distribution rather than have another white elephant in their midst. (i.e. First gen RT didn’t sell the best).

          Surface pro says you’re wrong along with all the other mice and keyboards they make that I swear by.
