    Surface Pro 4

    Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Specifications Appear – Will Be Cheaper Than Surface Pro 3

    Only yesterday we informed you about Apple and its suppliers speeding things up on the 12.9 inch iPad Pro. After the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus, the iPad Pro is going to be the company’s first foray into larger screened tablets if the rumors and leaks so far are correct. It will also be targeting Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 if Japanese sources that have also provided information about the device’s thickness and specifications are to be believed. Well looks like Microsoft’s looking to make a comeback of its own, with information about the next Surface tablet, the Surface Pro 4 having popped up today.
    Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Expected Next Year With Intel Core M And Windows 10 On Board.

    With its debut of Windows 10 to developers this year, looks like Microsoft isn’t done yet when it comes to its Surface Pro lineup. Previously the company was rumored to be discontinuing the lineup after the second and third generation of the Surface lineup had cost Redmond massive losses of around $2 Billion. Well it looks like Microsoft is looking to give Apple tough competition next year, with the company allegedly having plans for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.

    A cada iteração que passa o ecrã é maior. Tablets de 14", pelo menos a mim, não fazem sentido.

    Faz sentido haver oferta para vários gostos. Onde tu não vejas sentido outros poderão ver. Os tablets caminham para substituir os portáteis. E por isso é que veremos tablets de tamanhos maiores a aparecerem.

    Espero que eles lancem em 8", 10", 12" e 14", com opção para mudar RAM, SSD, CPU. O ecrã pode manter-se nos 1440p que está bom assim.

    Microsoft reportedly expected to launch the Surface Pro 4 later this year


    Microsoft has had a successful run with the Surface Pro 3, racking up $1.1 billion in revenue from the sale of Surface tablets in the second fiscal quarter of 2015. Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is a full-fledged hybrid machine, which can be used as a laptop as well as a tablet, and runs a full-fledged version of Windows operating system, allowing users to install normal programs on the device.
    According to a new report, we may get to see the next iteration of the tablet, the Surface Pro 4, soon. The tablet is expected to come in two sizes, shipping with the upcoming Windows 10 as its operating system. Just like the current iteration, the upcoming model is also expected to come with support for a detachable keyboard so it could be used as a laptop as well as a tablet.
    As far as the sizes are concerned, the report mentions one will be the usual 12-inch model boasting a resolution of 2160 by 1440 pixels, while the other variant will offer a smaller display – possibly the Surface Pro Mini. We've heard quite a lot about the miniature version of the Surface tablet, and it was apparently canceled on the last moment, with reports mentioning that it has a tough competition with no distinctive features to set it apart from its competitors.

    Surface Pro 4 release date, news and rumours


    Digsby
    IM, Email, and Social Networks in one easy to use application!
    http://kvors.com/click/?s=88377&c=89569&subid=21226






    Each Surface Pro has arguably been better than the last, and there's good reason to believe that the Surface Pro 4 could turn out to be something special.
    While the Surface Pro 2 was marketed as a tablet that could do more than other tablets (particularly Apple's iPad), Microsoft switched tact to try and make the Surface Pro 3 an all-out MacBook Air killer.
    Touted "the tablet that can replace your laptop", it was lighter than Apple's popular machine, had a sharp display and excellent handwriting capabilities - but it was far from perfect. Battery life was so-so, you had to shell out for a (still pretty flimsy) Type Cover and it had a tendency to sizzle fingertips during operation.
    However, with Intel's Core M 'Broadwell' CPU out (and Skylake on the horizon), in addition to Windows 10 later in the year, Microsoft has all the ingredients to make the Surface Pro 4 the 2-in-1 that could kick both your laptop and tablet into touch.
    Cut to the chase

    • What is it? A brand new Surface Pro
    • When is it out? Could be as soon as March, as late as October
    • What will it cost? From around £575 to more than £1,300

    Surface Pro 4 release date

    Speculation is mounting as to when Microsoft will launch the Surface Pro 4, with rumours pointing to October. That's when Windows 10 is expected to drop (Microsoft has tentatively teased "early fall"), and it's thought that the Surface Pro 4 will be one of the first to ship with Microsoft's upcoming OS pre-loaded.
    It seems unlikely, but Microsoft could throw a curveball and launch the Surface Pro 4 at GDC on March 2 - 6, 2015, notes PC Advisor, citing a report by the Christian Times. That report cites insider sources from Microsoft, which point out that the Microsoft recently dropped the price of certain Surface Pro 3 configurations by $100.
    Surface Pro 4 design

    At 12 inches, the Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft's biggest Surface tablet (not counting the giant Surface Hub). According to Design & Trend, which points to Chinese news website cnBeta, the Surface Pro 4 will launch in two different sizes - one with a 12-inch display and a larger version with a 14-inch display (possibly to compete with the iPad Pro and other rumoured monster tablets).
    Microsoft's Surface tablets have always been praised for their design, so it's hard to see the company deviating too much from what has gone before. That seems to be the case judging by a company blog post by general manager for Microsoft's Surface line Brian Hall, which says that the Surface Pro 3's accessories will be compatible with "the next generation of the 'Pro' line of Surface".
    He wrote: "We are pleased to share that the following Surface Pro 3 accessories are designed with our product roadmap in mind and will be compatible with the next generation of the "Pro" line of Surface:

    • Today's Surface Pro 3 Type Covers
    • Our "infrastructure" accessories such as our power adapter, Ethernet adapter, and more
    • The Surface Pro 3 Docking Station

    "This commitment helps validate an investment in Surface Pro 3 and solidifies Microsoft's overall commitment to the continued growth of the Surface brand."
    On the other hand, now that Intel's fifth-generation Core M chips are available, Microsoft could use Intel's Broadwell-Y CPU to make the Surface Pro 4 thinner than its predecessor as well as fanless while retaining compatibility with accessories.
    The Surface Pro 4 could launch alongside Microsoft's long-rumoured Surface Mini tablet, which is expected to feature an 8-inch display and will be positioned to take on the likes of the iPad Mini 2 and Google Nexus tablets.
    Surface Pro 4 specs

    The Surface Pro 4 could offer similar storage options to the Surface Pro 3, starting at 64GB and rising to 128GB, 256GB and 500GB. It wouldn't be surprising if Microsoft introduced a Surface Pro 4 with a 1TB storage option for the first time.
    According to the Design & Trend report, the Surface Pro 4 will run Windows 10 and will come with a 2,160 x 1,440 pixel-resolution display, up to 1TB of storage and 16GB of RAM. It will also apparently come with Xbox game streaming.
    As mentioned, it is expected that the Surface Pro 4 will come with Intel's Core M 'Broadwell' CPU, which was made available to device makers in January. In TechRadar's analysis piece, we argue that the powerful Intel Core M 5Y70 is the perfect CPU for Microsoft's upcoming tablet.
    The Surface Pro 4 could also come with new accessories following Microsoft's acquisition of N-Trig, the Israel-based company behind its Surface tablets' pressure-sensitive stylus technology.

    Microsoft May Release Two Variants of Intel Core M Broadwell-Powered Surface Pro 4

    Made with Flare More Info'>
    There have been a lot of talks about Apple’s upcoming iPad, the iPad Pro, which is said to be a device more oriented to the business side rather than the multimedia/entertainment market. However, Microsoft is looking to release an equal rival this year too.
    The company is said to be working on a new Surface Pro 4, which may pick up where its predecessor left off. There might be two variant of the device, a 12-inch and a 14-inch model, both featuring a 2160 x 1440 resolution.
    Under the hood, the Surface Pro 4 is said to boast Intel’s latest Core M Broadwell silicon-based 14nm technology CPU, which would make the tablet one of the first full-powered mobile devices shipping without a cooling fan. This rumor would most likely lead to the conclusion that the tablet will be much thinner and with a longer battery life.
    While memory and storage is yet to be confirmed, speculations lead to the tablet coming with 8 or maybe even 16 GB of RAM and even bigger SSD storage than its predecessor. Microsoft is to be planning on releasing its new Surface Pro 4 in late Q2 2015.

    Microsoft might be showing off the Surface Pro 4 this month

    Microsoft might end up showing off the Surface Pro 4 tablet later this month at the company’s Build 2015 Conference, according to new reports. While the timing might be a little weird, considering that the Surface 3 only just launched a few weeks ago, the Surface Pro 3 has actually been available for some time and could do with an upgrade.
    The Surface Pro 4 would likely be the first tablet to ship with Windows 10 natively installed. Citing an anonymous source inside Microsoft’s supply chain, DigiTimes has reported that the Surface Pro 4 will be unveiled soon ahead of a release later this year.

    The report says that the next generation Surface Pro tablet will be shown off at the Build Conference this month, although the tablet won’t enter mass production until June, ahead of an unknown release date later this year alongside the launch of Windows 10.
    Microsoft’s annual Build Conference will take place from the 29th of April until the 1st of May. A Surface Pro 4 is likely going to launch this year alongside Windows 10 as an upgrade from the Surface Pro 3. Other rumors suggest that the tablet might try to take on larger 12 inch or 14 inch forms, which would help it compete better with laptops or the new fanless Macbook, which features an Intel Core M CPU.

    Surface Pro 4 should be powered by fanless Broadwell chip, Windows 10

    With Windows 10 getting closer and closer, news of the Surface Pro 4 is starting to hit. Microsoft's upcoming Surface Pro 3 successor is rumored to have quite the spec sheet, including Intel's fifth-generation Core processor.


    The rumored specifications have the Surface Pro 4 featuring a Broadwell processor from Intel with a fanless design "but with tiny holes for heat radiation", and "no noise" because of the fanless logic board according to Windows Central. The 12-inch display will remain, with its 2160x1440 resolution, and of course, Windows 10.

    Microsoft's use of the U-series Broadwell CPU will still generate heat, but the little holes in the Surface Pro 4 should let out most of that heat, allowing for cooler operation. We should expect Microsoft to unveil the Surface Pro 4 as part of its launch during Windows 10, which flies out the window sometime in July, according to AMD.

    Surface Pro 4 To Receive New N-Trig Pen With Mid-May Launch

    Things have started to pick up pace when it comes to Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4. As we get to sink our teeth in 2015, flagship and tablet upgrades from different manufacturers begin to hit the market. We’ve also been hearing quite a lot about Microsoft’s successor for the Surface Pro 3, which is expected to come with the manufacturer’s pending release of Windows 10. Well, if today’s sources are correct, then we could expect to see the Surface Pro 4 as soon as the middle of this month.







    Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 Tipped To Be Unveiled At Special Conference Mid May

    While there has been word about the next Surface Pro coming with a fan less design, perhaps in lieu with Apple’s release of the MacBook Air, there had been no word so far about the tablet’s release date. Well, Slashgear claims to have received information about the device’s launch, with an anonymous source claiming that the next Surface Pro can expected to be unveiled at some time around the middle of this month, at a special conference held by Microsoft. A new generation N-trig pen is also rumored to come with the device.
    Where does that leave Microsoft’s alleged plans to launch the Surface Pro 4 alongside Windows 10 remains to be seen so far. The Surface Pro 4 will not be utilizing Core M, according to latest rumors and will instead be choosing to stick with Broadwell Core ‘i’ range of processors, While that is good news for those looking for performance, how well will it end up accommodating heat issues with respect to a fanless design still remains to be seen. After all there have been reports claiming that the Surface Pro 3 faces heating issues, particularly the Core i7 versions. But it won’t be long till be get to learn more if Microsoft really is unveiling the device later this month. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated and let us know what you think in the comments section.

    Surface Pro 4 Will Be Running Skylake Processors; Expected Release Date October

    Now this is an interesting turn of events; Surface Pro 4, the upcoming slate from, Microsoft which was supposed to be housing an Intel Core M processor belonging to the 14 nm Broadwell lineup is instead going to be replaced by Skylake processors. This chips are going to be made on the same manufacturing process as Broadwell. The software giant plans on sweetening the pot for consumers by making the product run Windows 10 right out of the box, which will definitely be a welcome sight rather than users performing the tedious updating process themselves.

    Microsoft Plans On Upping Surface Pro 4 Units To 600,000 Per Month; Company Expecting Great Results From The Tablet?

    According to the latest report, Microsoft had shipped out approximately 300,000 monthly units of its Surface Pro 3 slate. When Surface Pro 4 officially hits markets, the company plans on increasing that number to 500,000 – 600,000 units per month. Surface Pro 4 is expected to offer the same amount of features as its predecessor, ranging from a fully functional USB 3.0 port. In addition, the slate is also expected to exude a highly dense resolution and a large screen size that will deliver a ‘two in one’ solution for both casual users and those who require portability and performance for multiple tasks completion.





    Like Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 4 will most likely be available in the Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processor variants and is expected to feature a smaller price tag in order to target a larger audience. However, the highlight of the product will be that it will be running Windows 10, which is expected to be officially announced on July 29. Let us hope that Microsoft goes easy on the price of its upcoming flagship slate.
    In our opinion, the fact that Microsoft plans on shipping about twice the number of units of Surface Pro 4 as it did with Surface Pro 3 will give a general idea that the company seems confident that its upcoming product is going to be nearly twice as successful as its predecessor. Looks like we are going to have to wait and see what other goodies come along with Surface Pro 4 in order to deliver a more conclusive analysis.
    Are you guys excited for Surface Pro 4? Let us know your thoughts.

    Microsoft Reported To Release Tablets with 12 Inch+ Screen Sizes

    Microsoft seems dead serious about bridging the gap between tablets and laptops. Previously, we reported that the upcoming Surface Pro 4 will be releasing in October and will be sporting Skylake processors instead of Intel’s Broadwell lineup. While we believe that Surface Pro 4 is going to sport a 12 inch display with a dense resolution, Microsoft might not stop there. The firm is also planning on releasing tablets in the future that will be sporting screen sizes above the 12 inch limit.

    Microsoft Releasing Larger Screen Sized Tablets Would Mean Targeting The Notebook Market With Excessive Force

    According to the latest report featured on Microsoft-news, the report states that Microsoft Surface tablet “will feature a large size display.” In terms of tablet form factors, 12 inches is still a monumental screen size, and as of right now Microsoft has not detailed as to what size the company plans on classifying its tablets as ‘large’. Like always, we are going to have to wait for Windows 10’s official release date in order to get to know more about the firm’s plans.
    Now, according to DigiTimes, the first paragraph states the following:





    “As demand for tablets has been weakening, tablet brand vendors worldwide have been adjusting their strategies for the product line. Apple and Microsoft are both planning to release large-size tablets or 2-in-1s with disaplys bigger thatn 12-inch, while Asustek Computer and Samsung Electronics are pushing inexpensive high-spec models. Hewlett-Packard (HP), Acer and Micro-Star International (MSI) have turned to the industrial tablet market.”
    Now just because DigiTimes has reported this does not mean the website has found out about Microsoft and its plans. In fact, the software company has partnered with Acer in order to release affordable Cloudbooks. These Cloudbooks are going to target the market that Chromebooks have been able to accumulate for themselves, with the only difference being that the upcoming machines will be powered by Windows 10.

    As for these ‘larger than 12 inch’ slates, we are going to have to wait for details to pour it in order to provide a more thorough assessment. For now, take this information with a grain of salt.

    The Surface Pro 4 Can Come Soon As Microsoft Gains On iPad By 140% In Revenues

    Its been no secret over the past couple of days that Apple’s iPad sales have not been as good as Apple would have liked them too. And even though iPhone sales are at an record, folks over at Cupertino should be hard at work on deciphering the iPad puzzle Apple has landed itself into. Its latest iPad Air 2 was a good device in terms of every aspect, but according to latest financial data, iPad shipments have fallen by 18% while revenue has declined by 23%.

    Amidst Falling iPad Fortunes, Microsft’s Surface Manages To Hold Ground

    But even though popularity of the tablet and Apple’s iPad revenue continues to decline, things aren’t the same for everyone in the industry. Take a look at Microsoft’s earnings from the same quarter and you’ll see some mixed results. The Redmond based software/electronics giant sees revenues decline massively in its smartphone sector, owing to the mishap that Windows Phone has been.
    But take a look at its income generated from Surface sales and you’ll see a surprising picture. Microsoft’s Surface series has oft been criticized for being too expensive when compared to other tablets, but the Surface has always been more than just a slate. Equipped with Intel’s processors, its able to achieve much more then you’d be able to do on your average portable device, and seems that the market continues to respond to this.




    Microsoft’s Surface based revenues this quarter amount to a cool $840 million, which might not sound all that impressive but also marks a staggering increase of 117% over last year. With the launch of the Surface 3, the company also managed to successfully make the Surface Pro’s offerings more compact. Apple’s critical success factor has oft been its high price, which creates a sense of high value in the minds of many consumers.
    But seems like this time the Cupertino manufacturer’s strategy might have backfired. With a much better offering for the similar price, consumer show a preference towards better specifications and functionality rather than brand image when it comes to their tablets. And with this turn in tide for Surface revenues, Microsoft seems all the more ready to finally launch the Surface Pro 3’s successor, the Surface Pro 4.
    Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 has seen sparse bits of leaks and rumors surrounding its specifications and there’s little that we know of about the hybrid upgrade. Its expected to stay similar in design to the Surface Pro 3 and come in October, alongside an Intel Skylake upgrade, which should be a treat for many users requiring decent performance from their device. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated as this develops.

    An October Launch In Play; Surface Pro 4 Analysis, Specs And Roundup

    When it comes to gadgets and mobiles, Microsoft’s seen mixed amount of fortunes. While the company’s other offerings, such as the Xbox or its operating systems manage to stay on top, gadgets seem to be outside the company’s reach. But the Surface lineup has started to do good recently as evidenced by the massive increase in revenues which Microsoft has seen from this series, this quarter. And now we believe that the Surface Pro’s successor might be here by October.

    You Should Be Expecting The Surface Pro 4 By October According To Estimates

    With the rate things are progressing in the PC hardware world, you should be expecting the Surface Pro 4 in the next couple of months. After all, its been more than a year since we saw the last Surface upgrade and Microsoft itself should be pretty eager to push out a processor, given the fact that the Surface series has finally started to see some good fortunes as of late.
    But before we get into those details, lets start from the design of the upcoming Surface Pro 4. According to Microsoft itself, the Surface Pro 3’s docking station and other accessories such as power adapters and more will be compatible with future generations as well. This most likely means that it’ll come with a similar design and we wont find ourselves disagreeing from this as well. The Surface Pro 3 is very well designed as well, and the device’s users don’t have design as the primary feature on their mind when picking it.
    Rather, as we’ve judged so far, the Surface series sells primarily due to its excellent specs, which are able to handle a good amount of workloads and also allow Microsoft’s hybrid to be portable at the same time. With Intel’s Broadwell powering the current Surface Pro 3 lineup, its much more powerful than many similar offerings out there. And this balance of functionality with portability is what makes the Surface Pro such an attractive offering – even though it comes with quite a price tag.
    Speaking of Broadwell, there’s no way that Microsoft will launch the next surface without Skylake. After all, the current generation runs on Haswell and not Broadwell, so existing devices will soon become highly outdated. And with Broadwell’s expected short life, Microsoft will wait for Skylake to make the big jump in its Surface lineup. Plus, Skylake will also bring several improvements to the entire lineup, of which power efficiency and improved performance are only a few. And when compared to Haswell, the Jump will be even better.





    Judging by several reports which have surfaced over the past couple of months, Microsoft’s options for the Surface Pro 4 have been as open as ever. While we should expect fanless design to be out of consideration for now, given the power requirements of its intended consumers, options such as N-Trig pen are still on the cards. Screen resolution is expected to stay the same with 2160 x 1440 and the device is reportedly to come with the Surface Pro 4 sporting a 14 inch screen size.
    Two factors are, however of the most importance when considering the Surface Pro 4’s future. First of these is Windows 10, and as Microsoft had originally intended, Windows 10 was to come out in October, rather than a July launch, which took place just yesterday. So with Windows 10 coming earlier, Microsoft now has no other option rather than wait for Skylake. After all, shipping the Surface Pro 4 with Broadwell would make no sense at all, since Skylake’s launch is just around the corner.
    Plus, October is a date that we’ve been hearing for long when talking about the Surface Pro 4, particularly with Skylake having been thrown into the mix. And had Microsoft not decided to speed up its Windows 10 launch to accommodate the back to school season, we’re sure the new Surface would have debuted alongside the last Windows. Also, the company will have to accommodate its various PC partners and pick a period in which Skylake devices hit the market, so as to not negatively impact their market impact.
    Whatever the case may be, an upgrade for the Surface Pro 3 really is imminent, and Microsoft needs to take quick action if it want to capitalize on its recent success. And the company doesn’t need to change much when it comes to the device’s design either; all it needs to do is improve performance, introduce some much needed new features such as biometric scanning and its good to go. Performance has been a critical factor for the Surface lineup, and an October launch will allow Microsoft to effectively balance both Windows 10 and Skylake. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned for the latest.

    Surface Pro4 might have been delayed for Skylake



    It all makes sense now


    The dark satanic rumour mill has suggested a good reason Microsoft delayed the launch of its flagship tablet-laptop, Surface Pro 4.

    The latest rumours suggest that Microsoft was waiting to jack the latest Intel Skylake processor under its bonnet.
    Redmond seemingly wants the new Surface Pro to be state of the art and be a tablet which is useful. Skylake will give it better battery life and performance with current industry standards like Bluetooth 4.1, Cat6 LTE, WiDi 6.0, and A4WP wireless charging weaved into it.
    Intel will support the tablets through compatibility with 3D cameras and audio processing software plus better stylus interaction.
    There is no sign of confirmation of the rumours. Microsoft has been quiet so far about the Surface Pro 4. We had been expecting it to highlight some of the better features of Windows 10.
    However if the rumours are true it will be a hell of a lot better than the MacBook Air 2015 because it will feature innovation, rather than just being thin.
    Latest news about its release date suggest a 2016 launch.

    Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 Will Come With Skylake And 4K Display In October

    Given that Microsoft rarely manages to generate some interest in its hardware devices, beside the Xbox One, the Surface Pro lineup has proven to be a nice exception. We’ve been seeing several specifications and features of the upcoming device pop up, and it won’t be long until we get to see the next in the Surface Pro lineup, especially since Skylake is now with us as well. We’ve managed to uncover some fresh details about the upcoming slate and you can take a look at them below.

    If you liked the Surface Pro 3 you'll definitely like the Surface Pro 4. Don't worry, it won't be using Core M chips







    The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Expected In October With Skylake And Several Changes

    Even though the Surface Pro has seen an increase in revenues, and even though Microsoft itself has announced that existing Surface Pro 3 accessories will be able to work with the upgrade; that doesn’t mean there won’t be any changes on board. Starting from The Verge’s Tom Warren, he believes that the next Surface lineup willi indeed be coming with Skylake on board and can be expected in October.
    With an October launch, the Surface Pro 4 is also expected to come with the first major Windows 10 upgrade and will be divided into two screen categories; namely 12 and 14 inches. In addition, same as the last time around, the Surface Pro 4 will be available in more than one variant, with prices ranging from $500 to $1300. The low end Surface Pro 4 will be coming with the same display resolution as last year, while the high end variant is expected to go as high as 4K.
    The base model is expected to incorporate a 10 inch FHD display, fanless i3 supplemented with 4 GB of RAM and Type C USB. All of this will be powered by a massive 8600 mAh battery and Microsoft’s going to throw in a display and a HDMI port just for kicks. The high end Surface Pro 4 will be coming with Core i7, 16 GB of RAM and a larger 13 inch display.
    If all of these specifications turn out to be correct, and Microsoft also manages to overhaul the Surface Pro 4’s design, then we should be in for a good launch this October. A successful Surface Pro launch will finally mean a big break for Microsoft in terms of hardware and gadgets and will give it a good base from where to move towards other devices. Lets hope Redmond knows what its doing. It surely sounds like it. Stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
