Technology giant Microsoft has finally brought its ‘Surface’ range of tablets to the Indian market with the latest version – Surface Pro 4 – priced at Rs 89,990 onwards.
Designed to run full Microsoft Office, the Surface Pro 4 includes Windows Hello, Surface Pen, Microsoft Edge and Cortana.
In November last year, Satya Nadella, the India-born chief of Microsoft, had announced that the company will bring the device to India soon.
"Surface Pro 4, the most awaited tablet, is now available in India. It is a perfect choice for people who place a premium on portability, yet require more productivity and performance out of their devices," Microsoft India Chairman Bhaskar Pramanik told reporters.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 comes with a 12.3-inch display and runs on the Windows 10 operating system.
It is available in three Intel processor options: i3, i5 and i7. Buyers can choose between 4GB and 8GB of RAM and 128GB and 256GB of storage.
The Surface Pro 4 comes with USB 3.0 port, card reader, 5MP front and 8MP rear camera. It has Dolby audio for sound enhancement.
The previous version of the tablet, Surface Pro 3, will be available for Rs 73,990 onwards. Buyers can book the device on ecommerce portal Amazon.in from today and deliveries will commence from January 14.
Microsoft also said 200 million computers are now running on Windows 10. Launched about six months ago, this is the fastest-growing OS release in Microsoft’s history.
