Microsoft Surface Pro 4: How the next gen tablet may trouble iPad makers Apple

Finally it is the time for the arrival of the much anticipated tablet from Redmond based tech giant Microsoft. For many weeks, Microsoft fans are anxiously awaiting the announcement for Microsoft Surface Pro 4 release date and the excitement couldn’t be higher as the time approaches slowly.

The next generation tablet is going to come with far better specifications and features than the Surface Pro 3. The biggest improvement is going to happen in the case of operating system as the new tab will come with new Windows 10 out of the box. This time Microsoft seems to be imitating Cupertino based Apple and so it hasn’t spoken a word about the specs combination of the tablet.

But tech mavens are trying to piece together information coming from different sources. A report in The Verge said, “The software giant is holding a press event in New York on October 6th to unveil a range of hardware running Windows 10”. The report goes on to add that Microsoft “looks set to launch its Surface Pro 4, Lumia 950 / Lumia 950 XL handsets, and a new Microsoft Band in the same hardware event.”

In a press invitation sent by Microsoft the company said “We have some exciting news to share about Windows 10 devices…Join us for the media briefing at the Skylight at Moynihan Station in New York City on October 6th at 10:00 a.m. EDT.”

One major improvement in the new tablet will be Intel’s new Skylake chips when it is eventually released. This news is going to change the complete dynamics of the tablets in the market at the moment. A report in the Forbes says that one of the reasons for why Microsoft may have delayed the Surface Pro 4 to this point is they have been waiting for the arrival of the new Skylake models. Nonetheless as it is yet to be confirmed there are others who have a different idea altogether. There are tech analysts who actually believe Microsoft may go in a different direction by using Intel’s Broadwell chips instead. If Microsoft does end up using the Broadwell chips, it would likely be because the company wanted to keep the Surface Pro 4 as thin as possible.
