The 2017 tablet from Microsoft has shed the number from its name. At least, that’s what inside sources are letting us believe. As for Microsoft, the company has been tight-lipped about the product, suggesting only that there will be no Surface Pro 5 to speak of. Hence, the next in line after Surface Pro 4 should be called Surface Pro. Much more to the point, we know.
