Microsoft is reportedly planning to release a line of Surface Pro tablets with larger displays.
The company has been pleased with the sales of the Surface Pro 3 and plans to target the business segment with a 13- or 14-inch Surface Pro, according to reports. DigiTimes cites industry sources who said that the Surface Pro 3 turned Microsoft’s fortunes in the tablet market around.
Microsoft saw its revenues from its Surface business increase from $400 million in the third quarter of 2013 to $908 million a year later. At the same time, Surface tablets still account for a small portion of total global tablets, so there is more work to be done.
It is early in the planning process for a new line of Surface Pro tablets, so there is always the chance that plans will change. As it stands, the Surface Pro will grow from a 12-inch device to a 13- or 14-inch tablet.
Microsoft is yet to comment on the report.
