They say third time's the charm and, boy, was it true for Microsoft. The first two iterations of the Surface failed to gain much traction among customers but the launch of the Surface Pro 3 in April of last year changed things, making Surface the legitimate next billion dollar business for Microsoft. Following that success, Microsoft is now looking to introduce its wares in India.
The tablet, destined to replace your laptop, was only available in 28 markets till now but Microsoft's Director of Windows Business Group in India has, in a recent conversation with The Times of India, revealed that the tech giant is looking to make an entry into the Indian market. While the company had previously refrained from competing in the volatile and extremely price sensitive region, it now believes that the Surface line may find a home in the subcontinent after all:
We feel there's a market in India for all devices including high-end convertibles and the Surface is the perfect device to showcase Windows 10, which adapts to 2-in-1s easily with seamless switching between PC and tablet UIs
He did not, however, commit to any timeline for when this might come to fruition - or reveal any pricing details.
