3 February 2022; Dubai, UAE: Today, Microsoft announced the general availability of Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio and Surface Pro 8 for organisations across industries in the UAE. Built to be modern and essential devices for today’s hybrid workforce, the new Surface products protect productivity, promote innovation, and prioritise accessibility, while ensuring the safety and security of all users.
“Today’s work environment has transformed drastically after industries have had to overcome the overwhelming challenges over the past couple of years”, said Laura McDonald, Business Group Director, Modern Work with Surface Microsoft UAE. “And in this difficult transition, people have remained resilient, leveraging the power of innovative technology. With the introduction of the new Surface devices, the modern-day hybrid workplace will benefit the most from secure technology that can not only keep up with today’s accelerated changes but enhance the entire work experience to take productivity to the next level. We’re excited to see organisations in the UAE flourish with these new innovations and unlock the potential of their workforce”.
Designed in concert with Windows 11, the new devices reflect Microsoft’s commitment towards designing technology that fosters productivity and creativity, while also bringing inclusion and accessibility to the fore. Each new version of Windows unlocks the next generation of hardware innovation. And for the last decade, Surface has been at the forefront – challenging convention, pioneering new experiences and creating entirely new categories of devices. “Windows 11 is built on the familiar Windows foundation but reimagined to boost employee productivity and enhance collaboration on the most secure version of Windows yet”, added McDonald.
In addition to ensuring productivity and innovation in the modern workplace, Microsoft is launching the Microsoft Ocean Plastic Mouse as a step forward in Microsoft’s larger sustainability journey. In keeping with the organisation’s goal to have 100 percent recyclable devices and packages by 2030, the new mouse is made with 20 percent recycled ocean plastic and its packaging is 100 percent recyclable.
