Microsoft Surface Book 2 release date could be just DAYS away

Microsoft Surface Book 2 release date could be just DAYS away

The current model of Surface Pro, aka the Surface Pro 4, is easily one of the most popular devices available in the 2-in-1 market.

There are a couple of reasons given for this abrupt turnaround.

Ongoing speculation surrounding Microsoft Corporation's (NASDAQ: MSFT) Surface lineup has strongly suggested that the tech giant is ready to roll out its next-generation devices, starting with the ever-popular Surface Pro 5.

A report from DigiTimes claims that the Surface Book 2 has already entered production, and will be unveiled within the next few weeks. Microsoft, which has always delivered affordable products to its customers, might want to change that with the new Surface Book 2. This is a good and bad thing, as people who use Surface Book as a tablet (at least sometimes) won't like the news - but it's a heavy device, and doesn't bode well in tablet use.

Lowering the price will probably boost the demand for Surface Book 2. Customers had a hard time choosing between a Surface tablet device and a Surface Book device. Even its chassis is likely going to be composed of the same magnesium-aluminum alloy. Pricing is expected to be around $1,000, versus $1,499 and up for the first generation Surface Book. It is estimated that Microsoft shipped just 500,000 Surface Books past year due to the lack of demand. Microsoft is apparently trying clear the inventory so that it could accommodate its new products. A rechargeable Surface Pen and exciting new Keyboard base are to be part of the new Surface Pro 5.

Anyway, coming back to the detachable display that essentially turned the Surface Book into a tablet, the news is that this feature might be omitted from the new version of the machine if we are to believe fresh reports.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that consumers and Businesses alike hate flaky companies constantly shifting strategies like season-to-season fashion. However, according to Taiwanese industry sources, Microsoft is going to shortly revamp the range, turn it into a simple clamshell design, and sell it cheaper. And yes, it's the question of the day.
