    Microsoft Working on Budget Windows 10 Tablet with 10.6-Inch Display..

    Microsoft's new Windows 10 operating system will continue to be available free of charge for devices with small screens, in an attempt to bring more tablets and smartphones running the new software to the market, but the company is also preparing its very own offensive for the hardware business.

    A new report reveals that as part of its efforts to stop the rapid growth of Chromebooks, Microsoft is working to bring a new Surface model to the market that would be specifically designed to be much more affordable than previous versions.

    Strangely enough, most Microsoft models were extremely pricey until now, and the Surface Pro 3, for example, can be purchased for $1950 (1500 euros) in top configuration, so the tech giant didn't seem to be interested in budget models at all in the past.

    And yet, the company could adopt a completely different strategy for the next few years, as it wants not only to boost adoption of Windows 10, but also to become more relevant in a market that's still dominated by Android and iOS.

    The new affordable Surface model could come with a 10.6-inch display, just like the pre-Surface Pro 3 versions, and might be offered in the same 2-in-1 configuration as the others, so a removable keyboard will continue to be a key feature.
