It is hard to class Microsoft's Surface Pro line as true tablet products because they are essentially PC's instead, but either way they are fantastic. The trouble is Microsoft cannot sell many of them, which is a shock considering how good the Pro is; it seems the price tag is just a touch inhibiting for the casual consumer. That said, Redmond is committed to the series and will prove it again when it launches the Surface Pro 4 in October.That is the announcement date being mooted by Digitimes (usually a reliable source) and the outlet sources Microsoft's supply chain, with upstream suppliers apparently told to ready components for shipping in September. Those components will then reach the manufacturer for assembly. While sales for Microsoft's tablets have been lukewarm, they are on the rise. The company is apparently moving some 300,000 Surface Pro 3 units per month and is upping estimates for the upcoming Pro 4 to 500,000 to 600,000 units per month. As for the device itself, it will carry the same premium and svelte design, but will get a spec refresh with the inclusion of Intel's upcoming Skylake processors (i3, i5, and i7 models are likely to be available). The tablet is also set to run Windows 10 from launch. source: Digitimes
