    Surface 3 Stock Is Starting To Dry Up As Manufacturing Winds Down

    Surface 3 Stock Is Starting To Dry Up As Manufacturing Winds Down

    Microsoft’s Surface 3 has been around the block for some time; the device was announced last Spring. And while we have not heard anything about a Surface 4 yet, the availability of the Surface 3 is starting to dry up as several SKUs of the device are no longer available on Microsoft’s website.

    If you head over to the Microsoft store, you will see that only the 64GB / 2GB Wifi+LTE model is in stock, the three other options are all currently unavailable. Microsoft does let you sign up for an email for when they will become available but when I asked the sales staff online about when they would be back in stock, they said if they knew, a date would be listed.

    It’s hard to imagine that there has been a hard run on the Surface 3 line these past few weeks that has backordered the device. Consider the tablets age, what is more likely is that Microsoft has stopped building this particular model.

    There has been little rumored about a Surface 4, other than some crazy ideas that it was going to be announced at E3, so what a new device would contain is up in the air. Seeing as the form-factor of the device is proving to work well for Microsoft, a dramatic overhaul doesn’t seem likely and a traditional spec bump and refinements would make the most sense.

    Makes sense.

    Microsoft didn't originally want to make the Surface to become a hardware OEM. They made it to set an example and be the gold standard of the Windows PC. Targeting the premium and low end basically undercuts OEMs.

    This particular article does not make sense....it would appear to have be written over a year ago.
    Surface Pro 4 was released last year.
