Smaller Surface Tablets On The Horizon

Smaller Surface Tablets On The Horizon


Microsoft could announce their new wave of Surface tablets soon according to the DigiTimes. The tablets are said to be smaller than Surface devices in the first generation at 7 to 9 inches. This is in contrast to the Surface Pro and Surface RT which have 10.6 inch displays. Different components for Microsoft’s Surface device will be provided by Samsung Electronics, Corning, Intel, and LG Display.

The smaller Surface tablets could be seen as a means to compete in a segment of the market dominated by Apple and Android OS. Microsoft really has its eyes on the 9 inch tablet market which is being dominated by the iPad Mini.

The new, smaller tablets are being rumored to be revealed in June at the Build Developer Conference.
