Microsoft has unveiled the Surface Pro1 3 - a bigger-screened, faster Windows 8 tablet than its predecessor2.
微软发布Surface Pro 3平板——比前代平板屏幕更大、速度更快的Win8平板。
Microsoft says the Surface Pro 3 is designed to replace a laptop
The new model features a 12in (30.5cm) touchscreen, 38% larger than before. The firm boasted that at 9.1mm (0.36in) thick - without an optional clip-on keyboard - it benetes the "thinnest PC" to be powered by one of Intel's higher-end Core processors. One analyst3 said he believed there was pent-up demand for such a device in the corporate4 world. However, the platform has previously5 been outsold by rivals. "The question that needs to be asked and answered is, 'Why hardware?'" said chief executive Satya Nadella at the launch event in New York. "We clearly are not interested in building refrigerators or toasters. We are not building hardware for hardware's sake. "We are not interested in netpeting with our OEMs [original equipment manufacturers]. "In fact, our goal is to create new categories and spark new demand for our entire ecosystem6. That's what inspires us and motivates us with what we are doing in our devices and hardware."
