Surface Pro 4 release date pinpointed with Windows 10 launch

By Peter Chubb - Jun 1, 2015

Ok, so We could be jumping to conclusions here, but has Microsoft finally announced the release date for the Surface Pro 4? The reason we say this is because the software and tablet maker has finally announced the date of the Windows 10 launch.

This is the day you will finally be able to get your hands on the latest version of Windows, and so we suspect Microsoft servers will come under a huge strain on July 29th. This is because the update is free for a huge number of Windows users, which is something the company has not done too often before.

Windows 10 release date

We already know of many new devices that are set to come with Windows 10 pre-installed, such as the ASUS Transformer Book T100HA. However, we have yet to learn when it will become available.

The Surface Pro 3 was released on June 20, 2014 in the US and Canada, and 25 other markets on August 28th. However, we suspect that Microsoft will delay the launch of the Pro 4 so that it coincides with Windows 10, as it would be silly to release it a month before, only for everyone that owns one to have to download and install the update.

Do you believe that Microsoft will release the Surface Pro 4 on the same day as Windows 10 becomes available, as surely this would be the perfect launch platform for the new device?

    I think the key delay here is the release of the Skylake processors from Intel. It is my understanding that Skylake has a much better battery performance and is critical to the success of the SP4. Until that is released and a sufficient supply is produced, Microsoft might be reluctant to release the SP4. Otherwise they face criticism for having poor battery life and/or have to produce a SP4 on Broadwell and then SP4v2 on Skylake

    I hope they do release the SP4 next month!
