I currently own a Surface 3, and a Surface Pro 4 i7, and as someone who travels a lot in Europe working away from my 'office' is important.
Unusually, I actually prefer the Surface 3 to travel with as it is more usable onboard an aircraft - for me the SP4 is just slightly too big, but now two years old, I'm really hoping there will be a refresh of the 11 inch(ish) design.
Just like the iPad Pro series - with very small differences between the larger and smaller sizes, I really wish that Microsoft wouldn't see the smaller Surface as a cheaper device this time around and cut corners for the sake of price.
While I understand and support that such a device would run on ARM - that would bring cellular which I would find incredibly useful. Have smaller bezels, although keep the same footprint with a slightly larger screen (11 inches?), and carry over as much as possible from the pro series.
Just because its smaller doesn't mean that it isn't a pro device.
I may have got this wrong, but what I am just about to say just worked in WP8, and just doesn't work in W10/W10M.
I used to be able to track flights in Cortana, which gave me notifications at the airport on delays/gate numbers etc... Those notifications don't work for me anymore - and to add, I thought Cortana was now able to take that information out of your outlook.com email account - never worked for me.
Secondly, when going to an appointment/event - with all the details listed within the event, it doesn't tell me when to leave, or the directions...
Cortana seems to be going backwards for me rather than forwards. (NOTE - I'm in the UK, so could this be a regional problem?)
