New Surface Pro 2, Plus to address current issues

Microsoft released their first Surface device back in October 2012, with the RT model, and the Pro followed in February in the US, with other parts of the world having to wait until May 2013. Because of this staggered release sales were not as fast as we would like to have seen, although demand was higher than stock levels.

Surface Pro sales have been far better than the RT and for good reason, but it’s a long way from perfect, and it’s for this reason why Microsoft is already looking into their next-generation of Surface devices. There’s already rumors that the RT will receive a processor upgrade before, but we’re more interested in what Microsoft plans to do with the Surface Pro sequel, which could either be called the Surface Pro 2 or Plus?

While many of you would assume that we would not see a new Surface Pro 2 device until February at the earliest, there seems to be a general consensus that the success of the international release of the Pro could bring the release of its successor forward.

It’s clear that the Surface Pro 2 was far from perfect, and so Microsoft will need to address current issues when releasing the new Surface Pro. Don’t get me wrong, while the current model does have a few problems, you have to remember that this is to be expected with such a new device, just as the first iPad had issue of its own — and still does.

Surface Pro 2 battery life — One of the biggest concerns with the Surface Pro is its poor battery life, although some of you are said to be happy with how long it lasts, although we are sure that you would welcome more lasting power. Microsoft has to use a battery with increased capacity, although making use of the new Intel Haswell processor will make some vast improvements in that area, just as it has for the 2013 MacBook Air refresh.

While it’s hard to pinpoint the biggest issue that Microsoft needs to address with the Surface Pro, we would welcome you to share with our readers what you would like to see improved and implemented on the Surface Pro 2, or Plus as it may be called? One thing we do know, the Surface Pro 2 price needs to be aggressive.
