Has Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Virtually Confirmed its Highly Anticipated Surface Phone?

Has Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Virtually Confirmed its Highly Anticipated Surface Phone?

Panay said the Surface Laptop was created to provide college-age users with important features, such as long battery life, storage capabilities, display quality, and portability.

A couple of years ago both Apple and Microsoft chose to introduce hybrid tablets under the iPad Pro and Surface Pro lineups.

Taking in consideration the that Surface Pro 4 is a bestseller and that two years have passed since it was released, one might think that it's safe to assume Surface Pro 5 is already under works. His exact words were: "there's no such thing as a Pro 5". If nothing else, if feels like Microsoft is flexing its design and manufacturing muscles with the Surface Laptop.

So the fans may have to wait for the Surface Pro successor until the company finds some meaningful enhancements in it.

"Since Windows 10 S has just been recently announced, we are working with our partners on app compatibility and to provide more detailed information", wrote Microsoft on its Windows 10 S FAQ page.

Microsoft has killed the Surface Pro 5 through a single statement that it won't be releasing any such tablet as it doesn't exist at this time.

It's been about a year and a half since the Surface Pro 4 came out. The mystery hardware to be unveiled in May could be anything, even a Surface Book. Just a few days ago, we saw the Surface laptop catered to the educational sector. "What I'm super, super sure of is that the people using a Pro 4 have a product that's going to be competitive for five years".

The Microsoft Surface Book has a richer set of ports compared with the Microsoft Surface Laptop, which only comes with one of USB 3.0, MiniDisplay and headphone jack. This version of Windows is more popular than Windows 8.

The result has been a re-shifting toward traditional form factors and legacy users. The speakers of the Surface Laptop are located underneath the keyboard. I'm not being down on Microsoft-after all, they're the only company that has ever tried.

"When it's meaningful and the change is right, we'll put [the next generation Surface Pro] on market", Panay explained.

Panay has spoken to CNET, stating that the company won't release the Surface Pro 5 until the time it has achieved "meaningful change" over its predecessor. However, with Microsoft in no hurry to bring it to the market, investing in a Pro 4 wouldn't be any less wise if you need to upgrade immediately.
