Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella stated that the company’s line of Surface products will be here to stay, easing potential fears from business and enterprise consumers that the hybrid device will be a trend that may eventually pass.
Nadella was quoted saying that the Surface Pro 3 is an “enterprise-class device”, assuring consumers that the company is “putting its full and sustained support behind the ongoing Surface project.”
To further reinforce Microsoft’s stance on the Surface project, Microsoft promised that peripherals shipped for the Surface Pro 3 will work for the next Surface Pro device. Previously when Microsoft switched from the Surface 2 tablet design to the Surface Pro 3, many of the peripherals for the former device were incompatible with the latter as the Surface Pro 3 had a much larger screen.
The reassurance of Microsoft’s Surface project not being cancelled comes as no surprise. As Microsoft has said recently, it’s willing to pour more capital into the project if they can foresee profitability.
Lastly, Microsoft also said that the Surface Pro 3 will be upgradeable to Windows 10, the company’s latest operating system which was just announced recently.
