Microsoft launched the new Surface Pro today. It’s not the Surface Pro 5, mind you, but an incremental update of the Surface Pro 4. It comes with Intel Kaby Lake processors and other refinements that will provide a better user experience to customers. However, the new Surface Pro doesn’t have a USB Type-C port, something that’s common on almost all high-end computers now. Microsoft’s solution for that is a USB […]
We had been hearing for some time now that Microsoft was going to launch a new Surface device in the near future, even if it wasn’t going to be the Surface Pro 5. At its event in Shanghai today, Microsoft officially announced the new Surface Pro. It has confirmed the price and specifications of this new product.
Microsoft is conducting an event tomorrow and it’s expected that the company is going to show off some new hardware products, we could be getting a new Surface Pro device even though the company has said that there’s no such thing as the Surface Pro 5. Nevertheless, the company itself has teased some new Surface Pro Type Covers which will presumably be launched alongside its new device tomorrow.
As the country gets into the NFL’s pre-season groove, Microsoft thinks it’s the right time to cash in on the sport’s popularity and promote its tablet at the same time. It has today introduced special edition NFL Type Covers for the Surface Pro 4, it’s an extension of the company’s relationship with the NFL where we regularly see the Surface tablet being used on the sidelines, in coaches’ booths and […]
Microsoft appears to have made it a habit to regularly offer discounts and promotions for some of its products, including the Surface tablets. Over the past few months, we’ve seen the company offer substantial discounts regularly on the Surface Pro tablets and it’s back again with a $100 discount on several Surface Pro 4 models. Customers who have been looking to pick one up for less have their chance to […]
If you happen to be in possession of a Surface Pro 3 or its predecessor, perhaps it would be prudent to sit up and take notice of the situation – that the AC cables will need to be swapped out as part of the effort by Microsoft to eliminate any kind of potential fire risks. It was slightly after the middle of last month that Microsoft shared more information on […]
Microsoft confirmed earlier this week that it’s going to recall some Surface Pro power cords due to concerns about overheating, which could lead to a potential fire hazard. At that time, it told Surface Pro owners to wait for a couple of days after which it would provide more information on actually how the recall will be done. Today Microsoft has released all of the relevant information through its blog.
Yesterday was mid-term election day in the U.S. which meant that CNN had a lot on its plate. Millions of viewers were tuned in as they followed the election. Microsoft had a prominent product placement throughout CNN’s coverage of the election which is why Surface Pro tablets were propped open in front of the panelists. Though things went south when viewers noticed that the panelists were actually using their iPads […]
I think for Microsoft users, they do look forward to every second Tuesday of the month, calling it “Patch Tuesday” where developers are concerned. After all, it is during that special day that the folks over at Microsoft tend to roll out not only security but software updates as well for its products. Apart from that, it will also come with new firmware versions for Microsoft’s Surface tablets, but it […]
It is that time of the month again, where every second Tuesday of each month equals to Patch Tuesday for those who are running a Windows-powered device. Whenever you check out the settings on your PC, you will most probably come across details such as security updates for Internet Explorer in addition to firmware updates for your Surface devices, and the firmware updates for the most recent Patch Tuesday would […]
Microsoft’s Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 were released across 21 countries just a few days ago, which means those who have been wanting to buy a Surface Pro at a discounted price can start heading to the Microsoft Store as the company has just announced the last-generation tablet has received some price cuts.
Microsoft has been going absolutely insane with the amount of discounts they’ve been offering to potential Surface RT and Surface Pro customers. We saw the Surface RT get its price cut by $150 in July, and the Surface Pro’s price was cut down by $100 for a limited time. It appears the limited-time $100 discount on the Surface Pro will no longer be the case as Microsoft is announcing the price […]
Microsoft’s foray into the tablet market the second time around (remember the tablet PC that did not take off all those years ago?) is not exactly a happy experience, as both the Surface RT and the Surface Pro has yet to achieve the kind of crazy sales figures which would make an Apple executive proud. Still, this does not mean that Microsoft has given up the good fight, having rolled […]
Just last month, Microsoft introduced a new firmware update for their Surface RT tablet which admittedly, has not fared as well as expected in the market. Well, I guess Microsoft has been in such a situation before with their original Xbox console that didn’t make much headway, if any, in Japan, but they persevered and the Xbox 360 did a whole lot better in comparison after that. Here we are […]
