Microsoft is all set to launch its Surface hardware in India. The company has extended media invites for the launch of the 'Surface Pro 4' on January 7.
The invite reads, "Start fresh on a brand new SURFACE! Microsoft India invites you to experience the world's most powerful computing device".
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella at a keynote address at Microsoft's Future Unleashed event in Mumbai in November last year had confirmed that the Surface Pro 4 tablet will launch in India in January.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 boasts a 12.3-inch touch display. It runs on Windows 10 operating system and can be used as a tablet as well as a fully loaded laptop.
It weights 766 grams and will have close to 9 hours of battery backup. Abroad it comes with Core M3, Core i5 and Core i7 processor options and with storage starting from 64 GB and expandable up to 128 GB, 256 GB and 500 GB. It also has an 8MP rear camera and a 5 MP front facing camera.
While we don't have any confirmation on the pricing yet, abroad the pricing starts at $899 (roughly Rs 59,000). But the Indian price will be much higher owing to multiple factors and duties involved.
