Finally after a long wait, Microsoft has announced Surface Pro 4 for India which starts at Rs 89,990. While the pre-order has already started yesterday at Amazon.in, Microsoft will showcase the devices at Microsoft Priority Stores in Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Bangalore. Those who are lazy to get their, for the first time, Microsoft is offering “Book a Demo” service in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi. However it is restricted to Office Addresses.
Surface Pro 4 comes in various pricing, and specifications. Below is the list:

- Surface Pro 4: 256GB /Intel Core i7/8GB RAM: @ 144,990
One thing that I want to clear out here is that Surface Pro 4 package includes Surface Pro 4, Surface Pen, Power Supply, Quick Start Guide, Safety and Warranty document. The Keyboard is not includes, and is sold separately for 12,490.00, and comes in blue and black.
Microsoft ha sales launched Surface Pro 3 in India, those who would love to have the Surface, but are looking for a lesser price segment. Good thing about Surface 3 is that it is compatible with the keyboard of Surface Pro 4 which has improved a lot based on the feedback by the consumers.
