According to an exclusive report from Bloomberg today, Microsoft is currently working on a range of low-cost Surface tablets that could be launched as soon as the second half of this year.
Bloomberg’s source says that Microsoft is making the move in order to try and compete with Apple’s tablet-market-dominating iPad.
The rumoured new Surface tablet will have a 10-inch screen, as well as rounded edges, similar to those of an iPad. USB-C connectivity will be included for the first time in the Surface line-up. The tablet is expected to be priced competitively at around $400. Microsoft is also said to be planning to launch cheaper versions of the Surface tablet’s keyboard cover, stylus, and mouse, which won’t be bundled with the tablet itself, as is the case with the Surface Pro.
In terms of dimensions, the source says that the tablet will be approximately 20% lighter than the high-end Surface range, and will have roughly 4 hours less...
Windows Central reports that Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 is now available to buy from Microsoft and Best Buy, along with many other retailers worldwide. You can pick one up for a starting price of $1,499 and a high-end price of $3,299.
The new Surface Book shows just how far the Microsoft laptop-tablet hybrid has come in the 2 short years since the first Surface Book was released. The updated version now boasts Intel’s eighth-gen quad-core processors and optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 or 1060 graphics.
This is also the first Surface model to feature a USB-C port, which is one feature that a lot of users have been wanting for a long time.
The fulcrum hinge has also been improved to make it more durable, and according to Microsoft, the Surface Book 2 has an amazing battery life of up to 17 hours.
Another big change is the fact that you now have two sizes to choose from, with both a 13.5-inch and 15-inch model available.
PC Mag reports that Microsoft Surface head Panos Panay today announced a new Surface Pro with LTE Advanced at Microsoft’s Future Decoded event at the O2 Arena in London during a keynote speech aimed at “empowering employees with modern devices.”
The long-rumoured Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is aimed primarily at business customers, and will be available in December. It boasts a Cat 9 modem, which makes it “the fastest LTE-enabled laptop in its class,” and has download speeds of up to 450Mbps, which surpasses the 300Mbs achieved by other comparable LTE-enabled laptops with only Cat 6 modems.
Panay also said that the new Surface Pro “delivers global connectivity with support of 20 cellular bands so you can work, study, create or relax uninterrupted.”
Adding that the newly announced device “rounds out” Microsoft’s Surface device line-up, Panay said that “the entire Surface family is built to bring the best of Windows to life,...

Business Insider reports that Microsoft has today unveiled the Surface Book 2, which BI refers to as the company’s “new MacBook Pro killer.”
Available on November 16, with pre-orders starting on November 9, at a starting price of $1,499, the Surface Book 2 boasts an incredible 17 hours of battery life.
Just as with the first Surface Book, which was released in 2015, the Surface Book 2 looks like a regular laptop, but with one major difference: you can detach the screen to make it a tablet. The Surface Book 2 comes in two screen-size versions: the original 13.5-inch display, and a new 15-inch option.
BI says that aside from this new screen-size option, the Book 2 looks very similar to the first Surface Book, although it does have some impressive new specs, including that battery life, and the equally impressive processing power, which Microsoft says is twice that of the latest MacBook Pro, and with a higher screen resolution as well....
