Microsoft reportedly working on 7-inch Surface tablet

Posted by: Brett

According to The Wall Street Journal, Microsoft is working on a 7-inch Surface tablet and will enter production later this year. Microsoft recently altered Windows 8 to allow for tablets with a display resolution of 1024 by 768, lending credence to a possible smaller-sized tablet from Microsoft.

The Wall Street Journal suggests Microsoft is feeling the pressure put on by the iPad mini and Nexus 7, and since Microsoft already has a larger-sized tablet in the current Surface model, a smaller model might seem logical. The verge reported last year that Microsoft was building a tablet with a 7-inch display under the Xbox brand, although The Journal doesn’t mention anything regarding that.
