    Surface Pro 4 To Be The Future Of Laptops As Suppliers See Increased Orders For Upcoming Slate

    Microsoft’s upcoming flagship tablet, Surface Pro 4 might end up bridging the gaps between laptops and tablets after all thanks to its impressive hardware specifications and portable form factor. This is perhaps one of the reasons why suppliers will reportedly be seeing a 50 percent increase in volume for the upcoming slate compared to its predecessor, Surface Pro 3.

    Surface Pro 4 To Be Equipped With A Skylake Processor And Will Feature A Price Tag Less Than Its Predecessor

    According to DigiTimes, the following has been stated:
    “Microsoft’s orders for new Surface 2-in-1 devices for fourth-quarter 2015 reportedly will be 50% higher than the volume during the same period a year ago, and the related upstream supply chain is already preparing to supply components for the devices.”



    As stated earlier, Surface Pro 4 models are going to feature Intel’s Skylake processors instead of the company’s Core M lineup. While these Skylake will still be processed under the company’s 14 nm manufacturing process, they will still provide the much needed horsepower and efficiency required to turn Surface Pro 4 in to an effective mobile machine. Additionally, it was also reported that the upcoming tablet will be boasting a 4K resolution, along with screen size models that will be in between the range of 12 to 14 inches.
    We also reported that pricing details will range between $500 and $1300, which is a much better offer compared to the price tag that Surface Pro 3 was stamped with. The upcoming slate will be running with Windows 10 right ‘out of the box’, which is something that we have been waiting for. As for the RAM count, we suspect that 4 GB is going to be present on the base model, and will work its way up depending upon the price tag it carries.
    While there is no mention of a release date, Surface Pro 4 is expected to be announced during sometime in October, so we will keep our fingers crossed and hope that the upcoming tablet does not disappoint us.

    Microsoft Might Soon Release the Surface Pro 4


    Even though some of us expected the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 to be released on July 4 alongside the latest version of Windows, it looks like Microsoft wasn’t willing or able to meet this deadline and decided to schedule the device’s launch to mid-fall. More specifically, the Surface Pro 4 will probably be released on October 4, which means that those of you who were planning to purchase a Surface Pro 3 should probably wait a bit in order to get your hands on its more powerful successor.
    The Surface Pro 4 is not going to be an ordinary tablet, as it will serve the function of both a laptop and a tablet. This particular design will make it highly versatile and sought after, but since it will basically incorporate two different products, it will cost about $1,700, which is definitely not cheap. Still, for that price you’ll be able to enjoy the impressive performance. The Surface Pro 4 is expected to be powered by a Core i5 or Core i7 processor while its screen is rumored to measure 12 inches and to feature a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. Despite its thinness, the “laplet” will be well ventilated and will probably feature a battery range of around 17 hours, which is nothing to sneeze at.
    Are you looking forward to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4?
    Thank you Yibada for providing us with this information.

    Surface Pro 4 Will Remove Notebooks From The Equation With This Crucial Feature

    Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 is slated for an October announcement, alongside the company’s other products such as Lumia handsets, as well as a fitness device called Band 2. Microsoft plans on bridging the gap between tablets and laptops with the release of the upcoming product but the Skylake processors present inside it will not be sufficient enough to do the job. You know what will? Lots on internal storage. Surface Pro 4 is not just going to come incorporated with impressive hardware. When Microsoft wants to bridge the gap between notebooks and tablets, we are confident they are going to treat this ambition with serious conviction.

    Surface Pro 4 Will Come In Different High Capacity Storage Models, Including 512 GB And 1 TB Ones

    The latest hardware leak from China suggests that Surface Pro 4 will not only come big on processing power, but internal storage as well. According to the source, the upcoming slate will be available in several storage models, ranging from 128 GB to 1 TB of storage. However, the only thing that concerns us that as soon as the storage count starts to increase, the pricing of the tablet will shoot up too.




    More details uncovered from the leak also suggests that the highest Surface Pro 4 model will also come with a whopping RAM count of 16 GB, along with a Core i7 processor. Naturally, consumers who have a ton of spare cash lying around will have the financial capacity to acquire one but seeing as how Microsoft has gone to extreme lengths to virtually remove the gap between bulky laptops and tablets shows that future mobile products will be much cheaper and sport better specs than this.

    However, one of the primary reasons why Surface Pro 4 is stacked with so much hardware is because it wants to gain a monumental advantage over its primary nemesis; Apple’s iPad Pro. If the leak concerning the hardware of Surface Pro 4 ends up being true, then Apple’s large screen tablet will already be in heaps in trouble. Let us wait till the month of October and hope that Surface Pro 4 features ‘top of the line’ hardware and a price that caters to a large consumer market.

    Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Processor, Connectivity, RAM, Features And Launch Date Surface

    With the passing weeks, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 has started to make an increasing amount of rounds in the news. The upgraded hybrid from Redmond, which has seen positive market reception since the Surface Pro 3 upgrade, is highly anticipated by a lot of quarters, and if the information we have on it so far is correct, then the next Surface Pro upgrade should be quite impressive indeed.

    More Details About The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Surface Today

    We already saw a rather detailed Surface Pro 4 leak yesterday, that managed to outline several key features on the upcoming hybrid. Today’s leak builds up on yesterday’s information and provides us with some more details on the device. For starters, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is tipped to be coming with Intel’s Skylake processors, with the 15 W, U series being the most likely candidate for the hybrid.
    In addition, Microsoft’s slate is also expected to be coming with 16 GB of RAM, and storage specifications of not only 128, 256 and 512 GB, but also a massive 1 TB option that should further help differentiate the device from other offerings in the market. The storage SSDs in the high end versions will be coming from Samsung as well, according to today’s information.




    Also, if you found that 12 inches on your Surface Pro 3 were simply too small for your requirements, then Microsoft’s got you covered over there as well. Not only will the Surface Pro 4 be offering a 12 inch screen, but an additional 14 inch version is also expected to debut this year, which should further incite user’s towards Redmond’s hybrid.
    The Surface Pro 4 be coming with a larger battery size and USB Type C connectivity on board, further adding to the large array of features its expected to offer. But interestingly, our source for this information reports that Microsoft will be launching the Surface Pro 4, alongside the Lumia 950 in September, rather than October as it has been reported so far.
    Given that initial reports of an October launch for the Surface Pro 4 were based on the fact that Microsoft would also be launching Windows 10 alongside, a September launch might just take place as well, since Apple’s upcoming iPhone and iPad events will be further saturating the market with more offerings. But until we get to hear something from Microsoft’s end, all of this is speculation after all. So stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

    Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Coming With 11 And 14 Inch Screen Sizes, Say Supply Chain Sources

    The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has started to see an increasing amount of media attention over the past couple of weeks. Redmond’s Surface Pro 3 has seen a surprisingly warm market reception and Microsoft really seems to be eager to build up on that with the Surface Pro 4. And while any official dates about the device haven’t been revealed, looks like Taiwanese suppliers have already started to see the benefits of the next Surface Pro.

    Microsoft And Amazon’s Larger Screen Tablets Benefit Taiwanese Suppliers

    When it comes to the Surface Pro 4, we’ve seen several specifications pop up so far. The upgraded tablet/notebook hybrid from Microsoft is expected to come with Intel’s latest Skylake processors on board and will be available in new options as well. Reportedly, the high-end Surface Pro 4 could see RAM as high as 16GB with Intel’s Core i7 on board.
    It’s also expected to come with screen sizes of 14-inches for some larger variants, which could turn out to be the right move from Microsoft if it wants to further penetrate the enterprise sector. And speaking of larger screens, Taiwanese display manufacturers have started to reap the benefits of the device. According to supply chain sources from that part of the world, Microsoft’s indeed planning to introduce two Surface 2-in-1 devices this year with screen sizes of 11 and 12-14 inches, with Taiwan’s supply chain expected to see a boost in revenue as a result of this.




    What’s more is that the same sources have also spoken up about Amazon’s plans for a 12-inch tablet this year, though in limited quantities. What uses does the online retailer expect from such a device on its end can only be a wild guess as of now, but maybe it has also decided to enter the tablet race.
    The Surface Pro 4 is expected to be launched in October by Microsoft so there’s only a little while until we learn more.
    Stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

    HP And Dell Give Microsoft An Enterprise Assist With Surface Pro

    Two years removed from taking a $900 million write-off related to unsold Surface RT tablets, Microsoft is tapping OEMs to sell its Surface Pro line. Specifically, Dell and Hewlett-Packard will carry Surface Pro tablets as part of Microsoft's new Surface Enterprise Initiative.

    Dell will be the first to start selling Surface Pro tablets with Windows 10 and Surface Pro accessories. Sales will kick off next month in the United States and Canada through Dell's North America commercial sales organization and later in the year through its website. This will expand to 28 other markets in early 2016.



    "Business customers will be able to buy Surface Pro from Dell, the same way they buy our Venue Pro tablets and Latitude 2-in-1s and laptops, configure, deploy and support them throughout their organization the same way," Dell stated in a blog post. "Now customers have a 'one stop shop' to get the very best Windows devices in the market backed by award-winning Dell Support and Configuration & Deployment Services."

    Dell will back Surface Pro sales with a one-year warranty. Customers have the option of extending it to four years. They can also upgrade to ProSupport or ProSupport with accidental damage protection.



    It's an interesting move in part because Dell already sells Surface-like products such as the Venue 11 Pro 5000. There's also the Inspiron 13 7000, a 2-in-1 PC that allows the screen to fold all the way back.

    HP will also sell Surface Pro tablets at some point, though no date has been set.

    Chinese Manufacturer Prepping A Skylake CPU Powered Tablet To Take On Surface Pro 4

    Microsoft outdid itself when it announced its Surface Pro 4, a Skylake powered tablet with enough horsepower to become a laptop substitute. However, a Chinese manufacturer has taken note of what Microsoft has accomplished and will answer back with its own powerful product.

    Cube Is Preparing A Large Screen Tablet That Will Take On Surface Pro 4 – Here Are The Rumored Hardware Specifications

    According to a source, Cube is preparing a powerful Surface Pro 4 clone that will be running a 6th generation processor in order to match the processing capabilities of Microsoft’s flagship tablet. The specification details surrounding the leak suggests that the processor is going to be a Core m3-6Y30, which is present in the base model of Microsoft’s flagship slate. While the CPU will be no match for the Core-i5 or Core-i7 processor models, we are glad to know that the upcoming tablet will at least go head to head with the base model.
    For those of you who do not know the specifications of Intel’s Core M Skylake processor, they have been detailed in the table below.





    As for the remaining specifications, Cube’s mysterious tablet is no doubt going to be running Windows 10, and will have a resolution of 1080p. While there are no details of a screen size, we believe that it will come close to the 12 inch form factor of Surface Pro 4 in order to provide a much more competitive matchup between the two machines. One commendable thing to notice about Cube is that it has kept its hand restrictive on the resolution, in order to keep the price tag competitive, as well as to improve overall battery life.

    Microsoft Beats Apple In Online Tablet Sales

    Many seem to be on the fence as to how trustworthy this data is, but I could certainly believe it, as the Surface Pro tablets have proven themselves to be worthwhile devices.


    …it’s no coincidence that Microsoft had a huge October. The Surface Book and Surface Book 4 were both introduced at Microsoft’s October 6 hardware event, and they represent significantly more expensive machines than Apple’s iPad (although the recently released iPad Pro should increase the average sales price of Apple’s tablet range).

    Microsoft faces Surface tablet delays



    Skylake’s fault

    Just when Microsoft has a product that is duffing up Apple, it is suffering from supply problems caused by Intel.

    According to Digitimes, Microsoft's Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 2-in-1 are expected to see weaker-than-expected shipments in the fourth quarter because of Intel Skylake processor shortages.
    The situation is so bad that some orders have been postponed to the first quarter of 2016. Redmond and its make supplier Pegatron have refused to comment on the news.
    However Digitime’s deep throats said that the Surface Book's monthly shipments will have a chance to surpass 100,000 units and around 200,000 units for Surface 4 in the first quarter.
    Other rivals had to dramatically reduce their orders for the first quarter of 2016 because of seasonal factors but Redmond’s orders for these high-end devices are expected to stay strong and are giving Apple’s products a major rival for once.
    The Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book are mainly targeting Apple's products as their major competitors and is hoping these machine to become a demonstration to its notebook brand partners.

    Since most of its partners' product prices are lower than the Surface 2-in-1s, the Surface products are mainly served as a complement to the brand vendors' products.

    Fix found for Surface Pro 4 sleep power consumption problem

    Surface Pro 4 users who wish to use the tablet hybrid at its convenient portable best, utilising the sleep mode for fast response wake times, have been experiencing trouble with excessive battery drain. According to Windows Guru Paul Thurrott the new Surface Book suffers from the same power management problem. Now there may be a decent workaround available, pre-empting Microsoft's official solution expected later in the year.
    According to reports, when you put your Microsoft Surface 4 into sleep mode it continues to munch through approx 8 per cent of its battery capacity per hour. That's not very good at all and the same symptoms displayed by the Surface Book are, in Paul Thurrott's view, "unacceptable", especially in a premium device.

    There's a new driver available for the Intel chipset featured in the Surface Pro 4 that hasn't yet passed through the processes necessary to become available via Windows Update to these machines. According to Windows-centric site Neowin, the driver installer file available from the Intel downloads site won't work either. However it notes that the driver update ZIP file can be downloaded, extracted and the update for the Intel Iris Graphics component applied manually.
    The impact of the new Intel driver is quite significant in Neowin's testing. In updating from a driver released in November to this latest one power consumption while sleeping, over a two hour period, was reduced from 2,000mW to 625mW. Many Intel components that previously showed they were 100 per cent active in sleep are seen to be truly sleeping with the latest Intel driver update applied. There are instructions on the site to go ahead with this Surface 4 driver update - but please don't proceed if you haven't done proper backups, considered any risk, or have the patience to wait for Microsoft's official update.
    In other Microsoft Surface news today, a Microsoft patent application has come to light concerning the Surface Pen. The patent shows that Microsoft is considering a stylus silo that also recharges the inking implement. With the current Surface pen offering between six months and a year of battery powered use it is not clear why effort is being put into this, other than the potential value of the patent.

    Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 4 firmware accidentally installs to wrong devices



    Crashes them hard with blue and black screens

    Earlier today, Microsoft released the first firmware updates of the year for its latest Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book devices. These were automatic updates that were supposed to add battery charging enhancements, a more accurate fingerprint sensor driver, and support for Microsoft’s Surface Pen on the Surface Pro 4 device.

    Unfortunately, the update wasn’t rolled out to the correct devices as the company originally intended. Over the past several hours, users of the older Surface Pro and Surface Pro 3 models have taken to Reddit and other forums to complain that the Surface Pro 4 firmware update was automatically installed to their previous-generation devices - silently in the background and without warning – after which their tablets started crashing spontaneously and giving black and blue screens of death.
    One particular user, who took to the Microsoft Forums to give a complaint, stated that he ran into several issues after updating his Surface Pro 3 to the latest January 2016 firmware update. They include rebooting into a black screen, waking up from sleep randomly, the Surface App mapping not working, occasional blue screens ending in “DRIVER_POWER_STATE_failure,” and not all drivers being up-to-date as described in the Surface Pro 3 update history page.
    A Reddit user has said, "Surface app refuses to save settings, and pen pressure settings no longer have any effect. After closing the app, it refuses to start again. Another has said, "[the] Start menu refuses to pop up. Windows button does not work. Pen input becomes spotty. This firmware update is literally the worst thing I've ever downloaded from Windows Update."

    Microsoft Surface Pro 4 firmware update - January 27, 2016
    A current solution to the firmware mix up is to uninstall the individual pen driver and reboot, as the original driver will be reinstalled upon reboot. For others, however, their Surface Pro 3 devices are stuck in continuous reboot loops or the above mentioned blue and black screen descriptions.
    Microsoft has clarified, “The [Surface Pen] driver is not intended for Surface Pro 3 and is no longer being offered as part of the update. If you had manually downloaded and installed the Surface Pen Settings driver from the Surface Pro 4 Drivers page in an effort to enable Surface pen button customization through the Surface app on Surface Pro 3, you will need to roll back and remove the driver.”
    Perhaps the most interesting part of the firmware mix up is that Microsoft has currently pulled today’s new Surface Pro 4 firmware update. Fourth-generation tablet users are now stuck waiting for pen support, while first and third-generation tablet users are stuck with black and blue devices as the result of the erroneous Windows Automatic Update.
    Meanwhile, the actual Surface Pro 3 firmware released last week on January 19, 2016 brought the following improvements:

    • Surface Pro Embedded Controller Firmware update (v38.9.50.0) improves system start-up reliability.
    • Surface Pro UEFI update (v3.11.1150.0) adds pen support in UEFI menus and improved support for 3rd party onscreen keyboards.
    • Surface Fingerprint Sensor driver update (v2.2.10.6) improves accuracy.
    • Wireless Network Controller and Bluetooth driver update (v15.68.9037.59) improves access point compatibility and throughput on 5GHz.
    • HD Graphics Family driver update 4331 (v20.19.15.4331) improves color calibration and system stability.
    • Display Audio driver update (v6.16.00.3189) supports compatibility with the updated HD Graphics Family driver.
    • Surface Cover Audio driver update (v2.0.1220.0) improves system stability.
    • Microsoft Surface ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery driver update (v1.2.0.2) ensures correct surface driver is installed.

    Microsoft’s Surface charger recall affected over 2 million customers

    Recently, Microsoft announced that it would be recalling power cables for some of its Surface devices after hearing reports of a fault with models sold before July 2015. At the time, Microsoft said that this would only affect a small number of customers but it turns out that over two million customers ended up returning their power cables for a replacement.
    This recall affected Surface devices sold before July 2015 and did not affect those who bought the Surface Pro 4. At the time, a Microsoft spokesperson said: “As a result of damage caused by AC power cords being wound too tightly, twisted or pinched over an extended period of time, a very small proportion of Surface Pro customers have reported issues with their AC power cord.”

    Aside from knowing that 2.25 million Surface owners sent back their power cables, we also know that this followed on from 56 reports of Surface cables catching fire. The reports were forwarded to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, showing real incidents of 56 Surface cables catching fire after overheating, so it’s a good job Microsoft went ahead and issued such a big recall.
    If you happen to own a Surface device sold before July last year, you can find information on how to get your replacement power cable, HERE.

    How To Get A $100 Discount On All Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Models?

    A hefty discount on an expensive product is always a welcome sight and seeing as getting yourself a $100 discount on a Surface Pro 4 is something we have been wanting to see for a very long time. So how can you take advantage of this offer? We will tell you how.

    Microsoft Is Offering A $100 On All Surface Pro 4 Models, Except The 1TB Storage One

    On the Microsoft Store, the company is offering an immediate $100 discount on all Surface Pro 4 models, expect those that feature 1TB of storage. Regardless, even getting a $100 on the 512GB storage is not a bad deal to avail at this time. If you want to know more about the product, we have detailed out proper information for you for the company’s flagship tablet and its hybrid product. Unfortunately, Microsoft has not provided a discount for its Surface Book, which is quite disappointing.
    If you want to experience the best of what Microsoft has to offer, then we highly recommend that you save up sufficient amounts of money for either one of the products. It’s because Surface Pro 4 is going to set you back by $2,699, while Surface Book is the more expensive model, with a $3,199 price tag. Another thing that you should be reminded of is that there are going to be no accessories provided to you in this discount, which is a darn shame. The only thing that you will be getting is a Surface Pen.

    Advertisements

    The base model of Surface Pro 4 is powered by an Intel Skylake Core m3 processor, while the highest model features a Core i7 CPU. The base model is also incorporated with 4GB of RAM, along with 128GB of flash storage. Out of the box, Surface Pro 4 is running Windows 10, and you will be receiving its updates in the foreseeable future. Apart from this price slash, Microsoft has grown a huge heart it seems because the software giant is also offering a $50 discount on its Band 2, which was originally priced for $249.99.

    Keep in mind that this offer will remain active till February 27, so make sure that you have taken advantage of this offer. Hopefully in the foreseeable, we should be able to see even more discounts for the slate, and perhaps for the company’s first ever hybrid. Regardless, tell us what you thought about two mobile computing beasts? We will wait for your answers in the polls below.

    Microsoft launches next gen Miracast Wireless Display Adapter

    Microsoft has launched a next generation Wireless Display Adapter. This new device improves upon the Miracast accessory it released back in 2014 with a new form factor and improved performance. In other Microsoft device news the firm has just released a BIOS update for its Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book computers, to address the previously reported battery sapping power management issues.
    New Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter
    A new Miracast dongle has been launched by Microsoft. The updated device is available for pre-order now, costing $49.99, and will ship at the beginning of March. Like the previous model it allows users to wirelessly send what is displayed upon their compatible phone, tablet (such as the Surface range) or laptop to a big screen TV, projector or monitor, for example. You can switch back to working on other tasks on your device while the content keeps streaming on the second screen.

    Microsoft talks up the new dongle on its device blog claiming that "It brings the best features and functionality of the first generation while reducing the latency and packing it into a new form factor".






    Unlike some other wireless screen streaming devices Miracast doesn't limit you to use within certain apps or to certain content. It is Intel Wireless Display (Wi-Di) certified so can function with those devices too.
    Surface Pro 4, Surface Book firmware updates
    Users of the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book have been rather annoyed about the devices' power management issues. While in 'sleep' these premium device have been merrily munching through batteries, having a big impact on their convenient utility value as portables.

    Now Microsoft has released firmware updates to fix these, and other issues, with the newest Surface devices. The particular parts of the update, addressing power management (Surface Pro 4) are; "Surface System Aggregator Firmware update (v103.1081.260.0) improves accuracy of battery status and battery life during sleep." There is also a fix listed as "Surface UEFI update (v104.1085.768.0) improves battery life and improves stability during power state transition changes into and out of sleep states." And the "Intel HD Graphics 520 driver update (v20.19.15.4364) improves display stability, system stability and battery life," could be an important update to address the headlining issue.
    If you own one of the affected devices and haven't received the above firmware and software updates as yet, you should be notified/updated shortly.
