Microsoft is ringing in the New Year by launching the Surface Pro 4 in India within the first week of January. This is the first time the popular tablet series will be unleashed in the nation.
To recall, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 was internationally launched in October this year. While the company’s CEO Satya Nadella had previously announced that the device would be unveiled in India by January, he did not disclose an official date for its arrival.
