MWC 2016 | Microsoft Surface Pro 4 wins "Best Mobile Tablet" award
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.
