We have been hearing rumors about how Microsoft could be planning on releasing a Surface mini tablet. In fact a couple of months ago, it was even suggested that the Surface mini could be getting an official unveiling later this June, although it is only a rumor and nothing has been confirmed by Microsoft just yet.
Now according to a new rumor, it seems that additional information about the Surface mini have surfaced (no pun intended) once again. While the Surface series of Windows-based tablets are perfect at getting a variety of tasks done, whether it be watching movies, editing photographs, or creating spreadsheets or documents, the Surface mini will apparently be designed more towards note taking.
With its rumored 8-inch size, the tablet has been rumored to be marketed as a note taking sort of device and could even feature support for styluses, much like how Samsung’s Galaxy Note series of phablets gets additional functions when used in conjunction with the S Pen stylus. The rumors also suggests that Microsoft could be looking to create app designed for such tasks and that would be optimized for the smaller body, as opposed to the Surface’s 10-inch display.
It has also been claimed that production of the Surface mini has been completed, meaning that Microsoft could be close to unveiling it in all of its official capacity. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think of Microsoft’s alleged plan to market it as a glorified notepad?
