However, the iPad Pro and Surface Pro seem to go beyond the keyboard functionality and are more focused at replacing traditional laptops.
As Apple fans rejoice with their new iPad Pro, another super tablet is on its way to hit the market in the next couple of days. However, considering a good number of such rumors prove to be pretty much on track with the truth, there's a considerable chance that we'll be seeing the Surface Pro 4 officially unveiled this month. In a breakdown of what it thinks we can expect from Microsoft's Windows 10 Devices Media Briefing, the outlet lists a Surface Pro 4 that'll keep the same dimensions as today's Surface Pro 3 and another that'll have an even bigger display, perfect for taking on Apple's new iPad Pro.
Microsoft Corporation Surface 3 has the most accurate display as far as tablet PC is concerned. As for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, all we have now is just rumors and speculation on what it will be offered.
The design of the entire line of Surface Pro tablets has been lauded by many that it would be risky for the company to deviate from it, says Tech Radar.
The Surface Pro 4 surly sounds interesting with the new processor, giving it more power than its predecessor.
This Android device got its name from its stunning display - a 308 ppi screen with 2560 x 1800 resolution, measuring in at 10.2 inches.
A Polish company called Kruger&Matz is building its very own Surface Pro 3 clone that costs only about $500 and comes with a similar look and feel to the real deal. Microsoft's Surface Pro got off to a rocky start when it was first released in February of 2013. Although both have styluses and keyboards, and are light and thin, the Surface Pro 4 boasts of something that the iPad doesn't have.
Other important aspects are USB 3.0, 2.0, Micro HDMI-out, Micro Sim and microSD slot, 256GB on-board memory, a stylus that can be concealed in one of the poets and battery lasting up to 9 hours.
"In our tablet benchmarks, I never saw Surface Pro break the 6 hour mark on a single charge". And at its price probably only Android fanatics will want it. The iPad Pro is priced $799 for the 32GB and $949 for the 128GB model.
Earlier reports suggest that the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 will come in two display size variants, 14 and 12 inches.
