Microsoft: iPad Pro Will Always Be A Companion Device

Microsoft doesn't seem very impressed with the iPad Pro. While talking up the Surface, a Microsoft rep basically dismissed the iPad Pro as a companion device.

"Whereas the iPad Pro is always going to be a companion device." He adds: "The strategies are very different."
