Microsoft unveils new Surface model

Microsoft announced a larger version of its Surface tablet to make the device more compelling as a laptop replacement.

The Surface Pro 3 will have a screen measuring 12 inches diagonally, up from 10.6 inches in previous models. Microsoft said it’s also thinner and faster than before. The company said it worked closely with chip-maker Intel Corp. to maximize performance in a slim device.

Microsoft also collaborated with software developers such as Adobe to adapt Photoshop and other software to take advantage of the new tablet’s hardware.

The Surface Pro 3 will go on sale this summer, starting at $799. Microsoft will start taking orders Wednesday.

Microsoft announced the device Tuesday in New York.
