    Super disappointed there’s no Surface mini.

    • Bugbog

      Only slightly. The abilities of this device more than erases the lack of the other.

      • Lj

        It’s an incredible piece of hardware to be sure. For me however, I really want something for reading and taking notes and being able to easily pocket it and take it everywhere. With the popularity of the iPad mini and the Nexus and Samsung devices in 7″ to 8″ size, I suspect I’m not alone.

        • Guest

          Me too, is I wanted a laptop I would get a laptop.

        • Bugbog

          Maybe, based on the [hopeful] success of the Pro 3, we may still get a Surface Mini!?

          • Lj

            I hope so, but I can’t help but feeling that Microsoft is missing an opportunity again.

          • Bugbog

            Look at it this way. They could have focused on getting the Surface Mini out in order to compete with the other gajillion ‘mini’ consumer facing offerings. Or

            They could strengthen and perfect their hybrid Pro device and dominate in a segment no one else is even close to competing in, and one that is quite profitable too?

          • VeetQZ

            It is dead. The product was not competitive. Thankfully we have a new CEO that actually care about the customer. :)

        But the price doesn’t. (>_<)

  • Bugbog

    I guess we now know why Samsung rushed out a 12″ Galaxy Note “Pro!”

    Wasn’t it shown off in January? February? Is it even out yet? This event has shown up the pointlessness of the device. (I think Panay even mocked them during his demo).

  • DTM

    Waaaaay too expensive. $800 minimum?

    • Bugbog

      Maybe you should stick to the Nexus 2013?

      • DTM

        Or a similarly capable Dell or Lenovo device

    Nice they considered to go with the surface line. I can’t help though after this advertisement and specs and pricing the surface pro three seems like a bit of a rush job. I’m starting to have regrets that things are picking up pace @ microsoft like this. I have a surface pro 1, but after looking at the presentation, the video and the specs, I’ll pass on this one.

    • Bugbog

      If you have a Pro 1, then you can’t be all that disappointed with this announcement? And you (we) can’t really complain, as we’re getting what we wanted (demanded); a faster Microsoft!?

      That said, given the technical hurdles that needed to be overcome I doubt you can characterise this release as “a rush job!”

      • Vương Vi-Nhuyễn – 王微軟

        If only they were this fast with Windows Phones…

      • Willem Evenhuis

        True. I’m stuck with the what the better view is. Was it better the slowed down with the release of the pro 3 as to support a more tailored experience with the stylus (http://mobilefirstnetwork.com/microsoft-courier-ui-vision-may-soon-become-real-by-this-new-cross-group-inking-team-from-windows-office-and-windows/) or that they need to speed up with tailoring a more supportive experience for windows 8.1 and office, onenote and onedrive for the stylus, inking, and ink-to-text recognition.
        your view?

        • Bugbog

          I prefer this rapid cycle, as opposed to Apple’s rather slow incremental method, which just inculcates a certain laziness and contempt for the customer/consumer.

          And, if you are of the view that you should have waited, consider; I was quite disappointed when the Surface Mini wasn’t released last year, so I opted to get the Dell Venue 8 Pro in the interim. If I had waited I’d still be waiting, and not using!

          • VeetQZ

            Pushing out poor products like was done in the Ballmer years showed more contempt for costumers then speed of it.

            The company would have been whole lot better waiting until Windows 8.1 was ready. Just as it would have been better to have waited to ship W7 then pushing Vista on to the public. Just as it would have benefit the company and customers to work longer on RT and XBox 360 before shipping.

            This is specially important within mature markets and high end categories.
