Microsoft Surface Pro team head, Panos Panay, has stated the Microsoft team is working hard to ease the demand supply gap with respect to the Surface Pro. He assured buyers that more stocks will arrive by this Saturday. There has been strong demand for the tablet, which is either much more than the company had anticipated or they might have started with a restricted stock to ascertain initial response to it. Demand is particularly high for the top of the line 128 GB Surface Pro, which clearly shows buyers in this case are not price sensitive, but spec sensitive. This is just opposite to the way the Surface RT started out. The 32 GB Surface variant price at $499 had sold out soon after its launch.
Meanwhile, while still on the Surface Pro, Microsoft has stated it will support the tablet only until July 10, 2017. This was revealed in the company’s Product Lifecycle Webpage, which means the current crop of Surface Pro will have 4.5 years of life from now. That sure is a long time going by the rate at which companies have been pumping new products or upgrades every year. Also, there is no stopping anyone from continuing to use the device even after the stipulated period, though it’s just that the periodic updates will cease after the summer of 2017.
Microsoft has released a slew of patches and updates to fix 57 known issues and 12 vulnerabilities. This will set right issues that Windows RT users have been facing with App Store Downloading functionality. Other issues that the update aims to set right include those with Wi-Fi, volume control, and so on.
