Three New Microsoft Surface Tablets Hinted

Three new Microsoft Surface tablets may be released by the software giant in the coming year if the recent slashgear.com report is proven to be accurate. It may not be unexpected since Microsoft aims to give the Surface the same name recall as other devices in the market. However, it appears that reports on the supposed three new models of the tablet offering of Microsoft may have emerged much too early. The three new models will reportedly include new models of the Surface RT tablet and the Surface Pro tablet. The third model will reportedly be dubbed as the Surface Book.

The source of the report is the Twitter user @MS_Nerd, who indicated that the three new devices may be introduced by Microsoft by next year. For the moment, no details were revealed although the follow up to the Surface RT will feature a Qualcomm processor and an 8.6-inch display screen. On the other hand the Surface Pro 2 may feature a Temash processor from AMD and an 11.6-inch screen. Some industry watchers have hinted at the possibility that the Surface Book will be a convertible tablet/notebook since it will come with a Haswell processor from Intel and a 14.6-inch display

The Temash and Hasweel processors are supposed to be launched at the later part of next year, according to Digital Trends. This means that the successors to the present tablet offerings of Microsoft will not be unveiled until the later part of 2013. Although follow ups to the Surface RT and the Surface Pro are being planned by Microsoft, it should be taken into consideration that the specific release date of the Surface Pro has yet to be revealed. Some reports had hinted at a January 2013 release of the device. Due to this, it may be good to take these reports with a grain of salt.

Recent reports have also indicated that orders for the Surface RT tablet have been reduced by half due to a rather low demand for the tablet. This means, the success of the Surface Pro will dictate whether the new models of the Microsoft Surface tablet devices will actually be released by the company in the coming year. Industry watchers are taking a wait-and-see stance and it is expected that Microsoft will not release any statements on possible successors to its tablet offering in the coming months.
