Microsoft has geared up to launch the Surface Pro 4 in India on January 7, the launch news was carried out by Satya Nadella himself who had also announced at an event in India earlier that the Surface Pro 4 will be launched by the end of this year. In order to bring down the base price, Microsoft would also be introducing the Surface Pro 3.
The Surface Pro 4 will be announced along with the availability and the pricing. The base version of the Surface Pro 4 is expected to cost anywhere between Rs 65,000 to Rs 70,000 which brings it to the vicinity of MacBook Air. Now seems to be the best time for Microsoft to promote the Surface Pro in India as it is piggybacking on the success of Windows 10 which has already been able to capture 10% of the PC Market share.
We hope Microsoft bundles up the Surface Pro 4 with additional goodies to make the deal appealing. The invite mentions ‘Start fresh on a brand new surface’ which is definitely a witty reference to the Surface Pro 4.
