Microsoft teasing new Surface devices for 2016 and 2017
Microsoft houses a Hall of Fame inside one of its buildings and developer Shubhan Chemburkar recently had a chance to visit the site and take photographs. Interestingly, the Surface section of the Hall of Fame includes four placeholder placards: One for 2016 and three for 2017 all sitting next to existing Surface devices that are currently available. This highly suggests that Microsoft has some Surface announcements up its sleeve before the end of this year and even more for 2017.
It's still unclear if the next Surface will be a notebook, tablet, AIO, or simply another accessory. Recent rumors are pointing to a Surface AIO for an announcement this Fall while the Surface Phone is still a real possibility according to Microsoft blogger Paul Thurrott. The three Surface devices hinted for 2017 could be direct successors to the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book alongside a third brand new model for either the smartphone family or the outgoing Surface 3 tablet.
The Surface Pro tablets have been extremely successful in bringing Windows to a tablet form factor and currently ranks number one in our list of top 10 Windows tablets.
