It has been reported today that Microsoft has been sending out invitations to the press for a new Surface related press conference that will be taking place in New York City on May 20th, 2014.
Could this latest Microsoft press conference be for the announcement of the rumoured Microsoft Surface Mini Windows tablet that was also recently spotted in a number of listings over on the Amazon online store.
The multiple listings that were discovered on the Amazon website last month, for the new Surface Mini tablet, included a number of accessories and cases. Microsoft Surface Mini tablet has been expected to be launched by Microsoft sometime between their BUILD 2014 that took place last month and the Computex 2014 event that takes place in June 2014.
Unfortunately as yet no information on hardware specifications have been leaked or announced by Microsoft but the Surface Mini tablet is expected to be equipped with an 8 inch screen. The screen has also been rumoured to be built by Wacom and offer users a small ended pen stylus offering extra accuracy when writing and sketching on the device, rather than offering a fat ended stylus. However these are only rumours and nothing has been officially confirmed or denied by Microsoft as yet.
Let’s hope that the new Microsoft Surface Mini Windows tablet offers a new range of features and a Wacom built screen, that will help Microsoft compete with the likes of the Apple iPad Mini and others. As always as soon as anything is announced or leaked prior to Microsoft’s May 20th 1014 Surface event in New York we will keep you updated.
