Surface Studio AIO, Dial remote queued for Microsoft event

In less than 48 hours, Microsoft will be holding a press event where it is expected to unveil a new generation of Surface devices.

IDC: tablets continue to fall, detachables continue to rise

It's a good news, bad news thing for tablet makers, depending on which kind of tablets they're banking on.

Microsoft’s huge, expensive Surface Hub finally starts shipping

After several delays last year, Microsoft says it has now begun shipping its Surface Hub to business customers. Essentially a wall-mounted tablet, the huge display comes in two versions, a 55-inch HD model and the impressive 84-inch 4K version.
