Microsoft has confirmed that the company will stop the production of the Surface 3 later this year in an official statement.
If you visit the Microsoft Store, you’ll notice not every model of the last year’s Surface 3 is available in stock at the company’s store.
Upon reaching out to the company, it said in a statement,
Since launching Surface 3 over a year ago, we have seen strong demand and satisfaction amongst our customers. Inventory is now limited and by the end of December 2016, we will no longer manufacture Surface 3 devices.
It’s not just the Microsoft Stores, the device is also out of stock at major retailers, such as Best Buy and Staples. There’s a possibility that you may get the device to ship at your nearest Best Buy store within a week, but apart from that, it’s unavailable at most physical stores of the retailer.
Surface 3 was launched last year, but there’s no word on how good it performed from the company itself. There’s a possibility that the company may be gearing up to launch the new iteration of the tablet in the coming months. We’ll update you as soon as we get to hear anything more.
