Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 is apparently the company's biggest sales hit for its tablet family and today the company said that US government customers can now purchase the 12-inch device via the United States General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule.
Microsoft stated, "Surface Pro 3 has met all GSA criteria and, beginning today, US government customers may now purchase Surface through GSA." In addition, there are now additional Surface Pro 3 resellers available in order to 'meet government customer's buying preferences and address some specific federal procurement requirements."
Microsoft also offers a couple of examples of how Surface devices already being used by government organizations, such as the city of Miami. Marco Sanchez, the city's Network Administrator, is quoted as saying:
"We conducted a comprehensive analysis of other products on the market, and we found that Surface devices met our needs best in terms of performance, application compatibility, multitasking behavior, and user experience."
Microsoft claims that Miami city inspectors can now ditch bulky laptops, a camera, portable printers and charging adapters with one Surface tablet. Would you want your local government to consider buying the Surface Pro 3?
