Monday, October 05, 2015
the Apple iPad Pro allows iOS users to employ a tablet
with a 12.9-inch screen, there is talk that Microsoft is going to go bigger
with the screen on the Surface Pro 4. The sequel to the highly celebrated Surface Pro 3, Microsoft's most
praised mobile product, is expected
to be unveiled in New York City on October 6th. At the same time, we should see
the unveiling of the Lumia
950, Lumia 950 XL and the Microsoft Band 2.
current speculation has Microsoft offering a 12-inch tablet, like the current Surface Pro 3, and a huge 14-inch model with a 1440 x 2160 resolution.
That works out to a 185ppi pixel density. The slate is rumored to be free of bezels,
and there is talk that Microsoft will use the new Skylake Core chipset from
Intel. Up to 16GB of RAM will be available, with native storage running as high
as 500GB. Windows 10 OS will be pre-installed
to those familiar with Microsoft's plans, the company didn't want to mess with
the design of the Surface Pro 3, so the Surface Pro 4 will have basically the
same look as its predecessor. Microsoft GM Brian Hall has stated that the next
generation of the Surface Pro will be compatible with the Surface Pro 3's
accessories, meaning that the Docking station and the Type Cover from the
current model will fit on the Surface Pro 4. We could still see an improved
Type Cover for the new slate be revealed on Tuesday, loaded with new features.
addition, we could see a new stylus. Microsoft acquired the Israel company
N-Trig, which produces the stylus technology for the Surface tablets.
Considering that the new Microsoft Edge browser on Windows 10 has some
functions that use handwriting, a new stylus for the Surface Pro 4 is warranted.
raised the bar tremendously high with the Surface Pro 3, making it hard to
surpass with the Surface Pro 4. But now that Apple has an iPad challenger to
the Surface Pro line, the software giant cannot take even one second to slack
off in the high-end tablet market (or the enterprise tablet market, or the
large-screened tablet market, whatever you want to call it). The results of
this hard work will be displayed this coming Tuesday.
