Without a doubt, Microsoft represents one of the most respected companies around the world, in terms of software, and of course, its relation with the personal computer or PC, and Windows as an operating system. However, in relation to mobile devices, success has not been frequent, to change it, this company designed the Surface line, and Surface 4 Pro as latest product.
Microsoft since the beginning was a company focused on software, as principal premise, influencing hardware, but not manufacturing it, that happened later, but this company is usually known for creating Windows, where it has no competition as general operating system, and other software created to office and home use, photo editors, and other type of applications.
The birth of the Surface
In terms of mobile devices, Microsoft has not been very successful, in relation to phones, PDAs, MP3 players, and others. Starting from Windows Mobile, to Windows Phone, and all devices that functioned under these operating systems did not influence the market, at all, being completely shadowed with the birth of IOS by Apple, and Android by Google, a few years ago.
In consequence, Microsoft realized about this, getting the idea to unify their great software directed to PC, with a great mobile device, and they thought about a hybrid computer, some kind of mix between a tablet, and a desktop, in order to take advantage of both type of devices at the same time. With this idea, the Surface was developed, and introduced finally on 2012.
With the first generation, the market was not so expecting, and may be doubting about this new product, however, it resulted a way to consolidate the concept of a full personal computer, in a small package with multimedia consumption approach, like a tablet. So, Microsoft released the second and third generation, always selling more devices of this type, creating great interest.
The latest Surface 4 Pro
In the same order of ideas, Microsoft introduce its latest model of Surface, the fourth generation with great expectations, Windows 10, and following the design of its predecessor, being powerful, convertible, with an attaching keyboard, and sixth generation of Intel Core processors or Skylake, to ensure the best performance, smoothness and productivity with this device.
