Rumor: Microsoft announcing new 7-inch Surface tablet in June

surface far

We’ve been hearing a lot about Microsoft’s next Surface tablet, and now it looks like we may see it next month. According to Digitimes the long rumored 7-inch Surface tablet will beĀ unveiledĀ in June during Microsoft’s BUILD developer conference. And that might not be the only new Surface device.

Recent leaked changes in Windows 8.1 have all but confirmed that Microsoft wants to support smaller screen sizes. The Xbox and Surface teams have been working closely on the 7-inch tablet. With BUILD likely being about Windows 8.1 this year it makes for a perfect time to announce the new Surface tablet(s).

A 7-inch tablet would be a great addition to the Surface family. We’re excited to see what the Xbox and Surface teams have come up with. Next month should be very interesting for Microsoft’s tablet plans.

Thanks Nick!
