More info leaks about Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and Microsoft Surface mini tablets
On Sunday, we told you about the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, which Microsoft is rumored to be unveiling on Tuesday alongside the Microsoft Surface mini. We gave you a sliding scale about the tablet, which will start at $799 for a model powered by the Intel i3 CPU, containing 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. At the other end of the scale is the $1949 price tag for a Surface Pro 3 with an i7 chip, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of native storage.

What we've learned about the Surface Pro 3 is that it will have a larger screen, possibly as large as 12 inches, up from 10.6 inches on the Microsoft Surface Pro 2. It is also supposed to be thinner than the previous  Surface Pro 2 model.

We also want to take this time to tell you what we currently expect to see from the Microsoft Surface mini. We expect a 7.5 inch screen with a 1080 x 1440 resolution, and a 4:3 aspect ratio (as opposed to the 16:9 aspect ratio seen on the Microsoft Surface RT and Microsoft Surface Pro). It will feature Active Pen support, which is expected considering that earlier rumors have pointed out that the Surface mini is a tablet made for messaging. The accessory cover will double as a kickstand since there won't be one on the device. And the slate will be available in silver.

The event is coming tomorrow, so stay tuned!
