In a recent announcement, Microsoft Corporation has unleashed a new entry to its Surface line of personal computers, the Surface Pro 7+ for Business. The firm said that the new device is designed to enhance the efficiency of the remote and hybrid work and educational environments that developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Microsoft also announced that the new Surface Hub 2S 85" would begin shipping in select markets later in January 2021. This device is an interactive whiteboard. Since the past decade, Surface usage within enterprise organizations has nearly doubled, driven by strong growth in collaboration and productivity apps to maintain business continuity. The new Surface Pro 7+ for Business is intended as a means to support this sales momentum.
The new Surface Pro 7+ for Business shows that Microsoft is determined to remain on the cutting edge concerning hardware. Additionally, the focus on releasing an enterprise version before a consumer version is indicative of the importance of Microsoft of bulk sales to large organizations. It remains to be seen whether the technical advances that Microsoft touts for the Surface Pro 7+ for Business live up to the company's representations.
