Microsoft works on Surface 2 tablet

Following the release of the Microsoft Surface media tablet the US corporation has started work on its successor – the Surface 2. The new generation will, for the first time, include a 7-inch Surface tablet that will address the growing market segment of small form factor tablets.

Hardware specs are unknown as of now but next to the 7-inch screen the Surface 2 is expected to have versions with displays at around 10 inches that will compete directly against Apple’s iPad with the 9.7-inch display and the iPad mini with its 7.9-inch screen. Strangely enough, despite the lack of consumer interest in the Windows RT operating system, the next generation of Surface tablets will also bet on this OS and will feature a number of hardware improvements as well.

The next generation of Surface tablets is expected around this summer along with the arrival of Windows Blue – an update to Windows 8 that will add some new features and functionality.
