Surface Pro 3 headed to 25 new markets from August 28

Beginning on August 28 Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 will be available to a much wider global audience. Having been well received thus far in the U.S., Canada and Japan, Microsoft is opening the floodgates and letting folks in a lot more countries get their eager hands on the i3, i5 and i7 versions of the Surface Pro 3 from a variety of sources.

From August 28, the Surface Pro 3 will be available in: Australia, Austria, Belgium, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Luxembourg, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand and the United Kingdom.

Better still, most of those countries should be seeing pre-orders open up today, so be sure to check out your local resellers or local Microsoft Store online. We've checked here in the UK and the Microsoft Store has indeed opened up pre-orders with an "exclusive red type cover." UK prices start at £639 rising all the way up to £1649 for the 'big kahuna.' The Surface Pro 3 docking station should be hitting these latest markets sometime in September.

So, who's buying?
