Microsoft Surface Book is Windows 10’s MacBook Pro killer

Microsoft Surface Book is Windows 10’s MacBook Pro killer

In addition to revealing a new Surface Pro this morning, Microsoft showed off their very own notebook: Microsoft Surface Book. This device will support keyboard typing (because it actually has a keyboard, surprise!) as well as touch (on its touchscreen) and pen input - like the Surface Pro. This device has an optically bonded display coming in at 13.5-inches with PixelSense branding, and as Microsoft's Panos Panay suggests, "it will blow you away - what this product can do."

Surface Pro 4 revealed: 6th-gen Intel Core, glass trackpad, 12.3-inch display

Surface Pro 4 revealed: 6th-gen Intel Core, glass trackpad, 12.3-inch display

Playing Thunderstruck by AC/DC, Microsoft introduced the Surface Pro 4. This device works with a hybrid cooling system, a 12.3-inch display, and a fingerprint sensor. Microsoft suggested this morning that the device works with 1024 levels of pressure for the Surface's stylus, and that the device's keyboards have "better spacing." The cover - the keyboard cover, the non-keyboard cover - is also thinner. At 8.4mm thin, this is what Microsoft's Panos Panay suggests is the "thinnest most powerful Surface yet." With an Intel 6th Gen processor inside, we're inclined to agree.

Oh good, Samsung is making a Surface clone now, too

Oh good, Samsung is making a Surface clone now, too

The Samsung Galaxy View has been teased by the company this week immediately after showing off their Gear S2 smartwatch in full. While we've gotten our Gear S2 hands-on experience up close and personal, this Galaxy View remains a bit of a mystery. With a kickstand at its back and a bit screen up front, we can't help but see similarities between this and Microsoft's leading piece of hardware - the Surface. Could this be Samsung's attempt at the crossover?

Microsoft delays Surface Hub to January 1 because too popular

Microsoft delays Surface Hub to January 1 because too popular

It seems that one of Microsoft's promised products will fall back farther than the highly anticipated Windows 10 Mobile rollout. Updating its blog post on the Surface Hub, the company has revealed the updated shipping schedule for its "wall computer". Instead of September, the date is being pushed back as far as January 1 next year. The reason for the delay is, ironically, because there's a stronger demand for the Surface Hub than Microsoft anticipated, forcing it to adjust its production process and schedules for a more massive undertaking.

Surface will be Windows 10’s big star

Surface will be Windows 10’s big star

This week the folks at Microsoft have announced that the Surface line of tablet/convertible computers would be expanding at Windows 10's launch. They'll be the company's hero. Believe it or not! With the global rollout of Windows 10 on the way, the Surface tablet line will be expanding distribution channels and appearing in more stores. We’ve had a somewhat limited business channel for Surface," said Brian Hall, General Manager of Microsoft Surface said in a statement, "we’ve heard from a lot of customers that they’d like to see more partners offering Surface."

Microsoft Surface Hub wall computer is not for you

Microsoft Surface Hub wall computer is not for you

Microsoft introduces the Surface Hub, a wall-based display made for businesses - not consumers. If the price didn't do you in, the functionality certainly will. While using such a massive piece of equipment is certainly an interesting possibility for the average consumer, this 4K 84-inch display will facilitate meetings at your business. That's what it's made for. Not playing Angry Birds. Not acting as an 84-inch touch arcade... though using one as a pinball machine or a digital air hockey arena WOULD be neat.

Surface success for Microsoft amid Xbox pain

Surface success for Microsoft amid Xbox pain

Microsoft saw demand for its Surface tablets surge in the last quarter, confounding the ailing PC market with stronger than expected performance, though signs point to Xbox struggling. The company credits the Surface Pro 3 for its tablet successes, with revenues of $713m in the three month period, an increase of 44-percent. However, the outlook wasn't so great for gaming hardware.

Microsoft to release unlocked LTE Surface 3

Microsoft to release unlocked LTE Surface 3

As part of their Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Friday, members of Microsoft's Surface team fielded all kinds of questions from fans of the tablet device. When Redditor agaikwad2008 asked about the possibility of a Surface model with 3G/LTE that isn't locked to a carrier, the team responded that Microsoft will release an unlocked Surface 3 sporting LTE sometime in the future. The original commenter had mentioned they'd been searching for 4 years for an unlocked Windows tablet with 3G/LTE, to the response came as good news, as well as for anyone else in a similar position.

Surface 3: storage space still limited

Surface 3: storage space still limited

Just as each of the previous models of Microsoft's Surface tablet, with the Surface 3, users should expect less than the advertised storage space once they get up and running. This isn't new - and it's not limited to this device range. All devices released storage space aboard - almost without fail - will have less space once you've begun standard, active use. In this case, that means you get about 37GB of the full 64GB of space on the standard model Surface 3 - about 27GB of space is needed for built-in apps and the operating system itself.

Microsoft unveils Atom-based Surface 3, the Pro 3’s little brother

Microsoft is adding a new Surface table to their arsenal. In an attempt to capture the attention of students, families, or anyone not enamored with the Surface Pro 3’s $799 starting price, Microsoft has the Surface 3 (non-Pro). Starting at $499, the device sports a 64-bit Intel Atom x7 Cherry Trail quad-core SoC, sports 2GB RAM, and 32GB memory on-board. The Surface 3 will ship with Windows 8.1, but is upgradeable to Windows 10 once that version is available.

“Surface 3” rumored inbound, without ARM, without RT

“Surface 3” rumored inbound, without ARM, without RT

The absence of a Surface 3 when the Surface Pro 3 launched was already quite indicative of Microsoft's attitude towards the red-headed stepchild that is Windows RT. The death of any rumors or news about a so called Surface Mini further intensified such musings. Microsoft practically laid Windows RT to rest when it acknowledged there won't be an upgrade path to Windows 10 for the mobile platform. Now rumors of a Surface 2 successor are surfacing and, if the they are true, it would pretty much be the nail in RT's coffin.
