The rumors regarding Microsoft’s upcoming Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 are abound and why not, since its also been said that Microsoft will even release them with a new Power Cover! And all this new and exciting information points to one thing, Microsoft is planning to add to its Surface range with a Surface Mini tablet! It has been rumored that a 7” or 8” Surface tablet is under development, as one of the first announced features of Windows 8.1 was added support for smaller tablets. The announcement is expected to come along side with the other two tablets. It wasn’t clear if Microsoft would be designing the smaller tablet itself; however, as the company is now taking to manufacturing the majority of Windows platform hardware after its acquisition of Nokia, it seems likely that the mini tablet could be released alongside the rest of the Surface 2 line up.
