New Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet Launched India, Priced at $999 and Up

By Radu Iorga

India may be Lenovo’s playing field, since they’re getting solid results on the tablet market, but Microsoft also wants a foothold there. As such, they’re debuting locally the Microsoft Surface Pro, a move that was expected for many months now. The product starts at $999.

Launched in USA last summer, the Surface Pro tablet took its time to get to India. Interestingly, Microsoft skipped the first two generations of Surface in India, but the Surface Pro 3 and Pro 4 came there in January 2016. The Surface Book still isn’t available there. The starting price of $999 brings locals an Intel Core m3 model, with 128 GB of SSD storage, 4 GB of RAM and Intel HD Graphics 615.

There’s also a Core i5 version with 128 GB of SSD storage at $1230. You can go as high as Intel Core i7, 512 GB of SSD and 16 GB of RAM, plus Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 for $2814. The new Surface Pro will be available on Amazon and Flipkart, plus leading offline stores, like Croma, Reliance Digital, Vijay Sales and other retailers. For commercial customers, the slate will come to over 130 commercial resellers.

Accessories are also available, like the Surface Pro Type Cover (black), Surface Pro Signature Type Cover, Surface Pen and Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse.

Microsoft’s Surface segment has been bringing in serious cash for the past year or so and with Windows tablets being in reasonably high demand in corporations, that trend isn’t about to change anytime soon. CIOS and other IT segment operations are opting for Microsoft mobile devices more and more.

Sales of Windows tablets have been increasing recently, thanks to the interest from the corporate area. In Q2 2015 sales of slates in general increased merely 2% from the first quarter and generally the tablet market has been slowing its growth hugely over the past years. The core of the growth is dominated by 4G slates, 2 in 1 models and bigger devices.

The problem of tablets was that they weren’t seeing much of an adoption in enterprises. The lack of keyboard and the small screen bummed out most blue collars. The lack of support for productivity apps was another problem, till Microsoft’s CEO managed to bring a decent Office solution to iOS and Android ahead of a truly touch/mobile Office on Windows as a paradox.

The Surface and Surface Pro tablets eliminated both the problem with the lack of keyboard and productivity apps, also the small screen. Discounts are available for corporations and enterprise software is already set up. We’re seeing more institutions purchasing the Surface in bulk, like banks, hospitals, universities and such. With the iPad Pro ready to fight for this market segment, it will be interesting to follow the market over the next year. Microsoft does have a head start…
