Microsoft Surface Pro 4
Microsoft's tablet is widely regarded as one of the best slates of 2015, and now it has just won an award by the Global Mobile Awards in Barcelona.

Although its users had to face various issues, most of them were solved by firmware updates and the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 ended last year as one of the best tablets in most year end tops. Microsoft's Windows-powered slate has recently got an award in Barcelona, during the Mobile World Congress. This time, this device grabbed the top spot - Best Mobile Tablet.

The Global Mobile Awards is an event held during MWC by the GSMA, which delivers awards within 8 categories each year. Last year, Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 grabbed the Best Mobile Tablet award. This year, the Redmond giant was nominated in the Best Mobile Handsets & Devices category for both the Surface Pro 4 and the Lumia 532, next to devices by other giants like Samsung, Apple, LG, or Motorola.

The award might come as a surprise to Microsoft's haters, but also to those who faced severe issues with the new tablet. Fortunately, it looks like the Surface Pro 4 does not have any hardware issues and the future looks bright for this iconic device.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
