Microsoft has announced a range of Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices including the Surface Pro 4 productivity tablet, the Lumia 950 XL phablet and the Surface Book, Microsoft's first convertible laptop.
The range was revealed following an announcement that Windows 10 has been installed on 110 million machines.
The Surface Book is a top-end machine which can be used as a laptop or as a particularly large tablet by removing the 13.5in 267ppi screen. The firm refers to the latter as 'Clipboard' mode.
It includes sixth-generation Intel Skylake processors, an Nvidia GeForce GPU, GDDR5 RAM, two USB 3.0 ports, a backlit keyboard, a 12-hour battery and machined magnesium case.
Microsoft claims it to be "ounce for ounce, the fastest 13in laptop ever made", and that it can perform up to twice as fast as the 2015 MacBook Pro. However, it doesn't come cheap, starting at $1,499 when it launches on 26 October.
The rumoured Surface Pro 4 also debuted at the event, mere weeks after Apple unveiled the competing iPad Pro. It's the slimmest Surface Pro model yet at 8.4mm, and can be fitted with Intel Skylake processors, up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage.
The 12.3in display, constructed of Gorilla Glass 4, clocks in at 267ppi. It also launches on 26 October, and will cost $899 upwards.
The Surface Pen and Type Cover have also been redesigned for the Surface Pro 4. The Surface Pen now includes an "eraser" on its rear tip and can be fitted with interchangeable nibs of varying width, while the Type Cover features smaller, more spaced out keys, backlighting and a 40 percent larger touchpad.
The 5.2in Lumia 950 and 5.7in Lumia 950 XL were also confirmed, both packing the Windows 10 Mobile OS, 20MP rear cameras, 32GB of internal storage, up to 256GB microSD support, liquid cooling and a USB-C port, which can supposedly charge the batteries to 50 percent in 30 minutes.
The Lumia 950 will feature an unnamed hexa-core Qualcomm processor plus a 564ppi OLED display. The Lumia 950 includes an octa-core Qualcomm processor and a 518ppi OLED display.
The two new phones will launch some time in November, priced at $549 for the Lumia 950 and $649 for the Lumia 950 XL. The entry-level Lumia 550 was also announced, and will include a quad-core processor and LTE connectivity when it arrives in December for $139.
Microsoft also detailed a new version of the Microsoft Band fitness tracker, with a curved Gorilla Glass screen, a barometer and integration with the Cortana digital assistant. Priced at $249, it will launch on 20 October.
