Microsoft’s latest cutting edge tablet product, the Surface Pro 4, will be slated for release at the earliest this July 2015. It will be making use of the Windows 10 OS, which had been beta-tested for months and months by avid Windows users and previewed extensively before its release and controversial free upgrade for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users. There were some initial claims that the Windows 10 OS were available even for fake Windows users, but these circulated rumors remained unfounded.
Like competent laptops, it will boast of an impressive Intel Core M Broadwell chip, ditching the original plan to ship it with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. All the tablets to be released will be provided with a matching stylus.
Memory variants are rumored to be in the categories of 128GB, 256GB, and 500GB. Initially, people expected that this tablet will be released by May 2015.
The hybrid device is highly anticipated because it is portable but the processing power is already very comparable already to what desktops can do.
The rise of the tablets are certainly back. Surface Pro 4 is the latest in the large screen category. Surface Pro 4 (NASDAQ:MSFD) and iPad Air 3 (NASDAQ:AAPL) are not just exciting technology geeks but also investors who have high expectations about what their investments will yield from these two offerings on the stock exchange. Rumors of an iPad Pro notwithstanding, the feature battle continues among the brands. When put side by side with an iPad 3, the specs of the Surface may be up to par or even exceeding at some levels.
Technology enthusiasts like the Motley Fool maintain that they are two entirely different products. But the comparisons continue especially since it will affect the increase of sales. Historically, Surface by Microsoft has more steadily increased in sales and may gain a higher following, even when Apple continues to have good market share and a very loyal following.
