The folks over at the FCC do have a pretty fun task – they get to play around with the latest gadgets before they have been released, but of course, as anyone can tell you, the grass is not necessarily greener on the other side. After all, what about those moments when you have to test out devices that are not exactly the best in town, and those can be quite a drag? Well, one thing’s for sure, if you are going to test out the Microsoft Surface Pro, it sure as heck sounds like a fun device to put through the paces before approving it for a general release to the masses.

It seems that there is a tablet which is in all probability, the Microsoft Surface Pro that has just passed through the FCC, considering how it runs on the Windows 8 operating system and sports the number 1514, which is only a couple less than the 1516 number that is what the Surface RT is associated with. For all intents and purposes, having FCC approval would mean that a path for a January release for the Intel-powered tablet is definitely in line, and may we tempt fate by saying that it will be revealed at CES 2013?
