Microsoft is rumored again to be working on the Surface mini
Back in September, we told you that Microsoft was rumored to be working on a Surface mini tablet, with a screen in the range between 7 and 8 inches. While no tablet like that was ever released, the rumor has returned. Once again, the focus is on a slate carrying a 7 inch to 8 inch display. The Surface mini is expected to keep the same design as the current full-sized model.

Microsoft is expected to market the Surface mini as a tablet for note-taking. Even at 8 inches, some feel the screen will be too small to comfortably run the Microsoft Office suite. To be able to take notes, you need a pen and Microsoft is believed to be ready to equip the mini with something along the lines of the Wacom Digitizer in order to support the kind of multi-fuctional, high-end digital pen that would allow for a superior note-taking experience. According to those with knowledge of Microsoft's plans, Redmond intends on making this tablet the best note-taking slate ever.

The Microsoft Surface mini is rumored to be hitting the market sometime this year with the possibility of a Spring release. There is no speculation at this time on how Microsoft would price the tablet.
