Microsoft Surface Pro 4 available in the UAE
The Surface Pro 4 has been adopted by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Smart Learning Programme
Microsoft Gulf announced the consumer launch of its Surface Pro 4 in the UAE, hailing it as the "era-defining device in the era of devices".
The device is 8.4mm thin and weights 766g, and features a 12.3-inch PixelSense display, sixth-generation Intel Core processor and a multi-position kickstand, enabling the tablet to transform into a laptop when required.
Furthermore, it features the Hello login and is home to Windows 10. Its hardware comes with a pen with precision ink on one end and an eraser on the other, whilst the touchscreen is embedded with palm-blocking technology to enhance the writing experience.
"The Surface Pro 4 is an era-defining device in the era of devices," said Mohammed Arif, Windows and Devices Director, Microsoft Gulf. "Consumers now live their lives very much alongside their smartphones, tablets and laptops. So Microsoft has delivered a product, in the Surface Pro 4 that is whatever you need it to be, on demand.
"This is computing at its most personal, and with the power and ease of use brought by Windows 10, we are confident the Surface will be embraced by UAE consumers as an indispensable life companion. Compose documents, watch movies, make art, stay connected - live your life, and do more."
The Surface Pro has already been adopted by UAE initiatives, such as the Mohammed Bin Rashid Smart Learning Programme, but the Surface Pro 4 has also appealed to a diverse range of users, from media professionals to artists. Recently, at World Art Dubai, UAE-based artist Ashraf Ghori called the Surface Pro 4 as the ideal companion for artists embracing digital production techniques, citing, in particular, its ability to sense 1,024 distinct levels of pressure in a single stroke of the pen.
The new Surface is supported the Surface Pro 4 Type Cover, which comes in both English and Arabic. This is a redesigned mechanical keyboard with a large trackpad, built for comfort, and optimal key spacing allows for a fast and fluid typing experience.
