Tip: Watch Microsoft Introduce the New Surface Pro

Posted on May 25, 2017 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface, Windows 10, Xbox One with 15 Comments

This week, Microsoft announced the new Surface Pro, Surface Pen, and Signature Type Covers at a special event in Shanghai, China. Now, you can watch the presentation via a series of on-demand videos.

Why Microsoft hasn’t just published a single video of the entire event is unclear. But the software giant was prevented from live broadcasting the announcement because of Chinese regulations.

Whatever. Here’s what’s available now.

Introducing the new Surface Pro

We unveiled the next generation of the Surface Pro line, which delivers up to 13.5 hours of battery life and operates as a mobile creative studio, with a vibrant 12.3” PixelSense touch display that supports the Surface Dial and the new Surface Pen—the fastest digital pen ever—which allows you to leverage new inking features in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Windows 10 China Government Edition

The Chinese government has the highest standards for security. The tools they choose to use for productivity and creativity must meet the highest levels of quality. Watch Terry Myerson and Ms. Beth Xu, CEO of CMIT—the joint venture between Microsoft and CETC—announce that CMIT has developed a version of Windows 10 specifically for the Chinese government and state-owned entities.
