Pricing and availability for Microsoft's Surface 3 in Asia-Pacific region

Microsoft's latest tablet will also be sold in Asia at the same time as its US launch. Sarah Tew

Microsoft's latest 10.8-inch tablet, the Surface 3, will be retailing globally on May 5, and the Redmond-based tech company will also be matching the release date in the Asia-Pacific region.

Countries in the region that will be getting the tablet on May 5 include Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia and New Zealand. While Microsoft has no word yet on whether the LTE version of the tablet will see release in these countries, it would make sense given the fact that most of these markets already have robust 4G networks.

Pre-orders begin on April 2, and those living in Australia, Singapore and New Zealand can do so via Microsoft's online store. For other markets, the tablets will be sold through retail partners.

The Surface 3's availability in China and Japan was not disclosed in the release, and Microsoft said it would be revealed at a later date.

Below is the pricing breakdown in a handy table in local currency. If you're in two minds about picking up the 10.8-inch Intel Atom-powered tablet, be sure to check out CNET's Surface 3 hands-on.
