Microsoft Surface Pro 4 to counter 12-inch iPad Pro
It is rumored that Microsoft Surface Pro 4 release may happen on Oct. 4.
According to a tweet by The Verge senior editor Tom Warren, fans should not buy Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and instead wait for its powerful successor.

It is also rumored that the device will come with stylus pen. It is also expected to be equipped with an 8 mega pixel rear camera and a 3.5 mega pixel front camera.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 price is expected to be around $1700.
