The latest rumors from Microsoft seem to point to an October rollout of both Windows 10 and the new Surface Pro 4. What's odd about this rumor is that originally most tech industry insiders expected the Surface Pro 4 to launch earlier in the year.
Of course, if this rumor turns out to be true, it likely makes sense. By holding off on launching the Surface Pro 4 until October, this allows Microsoft a little extra time to refine the product and insures that it gets to launch with Windows 10 on it already. These are just two of several reasons October is expected to be the launch window for the Surface Pro 4. Here's a quote with a few more details,
Another possible reason for the delay in the release date of the Surface Pro 4 is due to the fact that Microsoft would like its combo laptop/tablet to compete directly with the rumored Apple iPad Pro, which the American tech giant may be launching in September this year.
The Surface Pro 4, consistent with previous reports, will apparently come in two models – a 12-inch and a 14-inch variant and both will have up to one terabyte of storage and 16 GB of RAM. Accordingly, both models will also make use of stylus and matching keyboards.
What do you think? Will Microsoft launch it earlier or adopt this rumored strategy to bring everything together at the same time?
