There are some interesting rumors surrounding the Surface tablet line, the most recent of which is speculation that a Surface mini is in the works. This tablet will supposedly have a screen in the 7 inch to 8 inch range with the same design as the full-sized model. This is not the first time that a bite-sized version of the Surface has been rumored.
The next generation of the Microsoft Surface and Surface Pro should become available in the third quarter.
