Surface Pro 3

GSMA, the group behind this week's Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, has handed out their Global Mobile awards for the 2015 show. Microsoft claimed one of them for Best Mobile Tablet thanks to the Surface Pro 3.

Microsoft's win shows that its 12-inch Windows 8.1 tablet has a pretty solid fan base, and considering all the tablets that have been released in the last year on many different operating system, that's saying something.
