Microsoft Surface Mini Release Date

New report explains why Microsoft ditched plans to launch the Surface Mini

New report explains why Microsoft ditched plans to launch the Surface Mini

Microsoft’s line of Surface brand tablets have easily been among the most sleek and well-made Windows devices the world has ever seen. What they haven’t been, however, is a hit with consumers or enterprise users. Microsoft continues to improve its Surface lineup each year, having most recently launched the new 12-inch Surface Pro 3 tablet that features what quite possibly the most impressive laptop/tablet hybrid design we have ever seen. The devices are still a tough and expensive sell in a market driven by price, however, and they don’t offer much in the way of truly useful differentiation.

Apparently, Microsoft’s much-rumored Surface Mini tablet didn’t offer much differentiation either, and a new report claims Microsoft cancelled plans to build the smaller tablet at the last minute. More →

We’re starting to get some quality leaks for Apple’s next-generation iPads.

MacRumors directs our attention to a new picture published at Taiwanese website Apple.club.tw that shows a mockup of the iPhone 6 sitting on top of what appears to be the next-generation iPad mini and the next-generation iPad Air. MacRumors notes that we really can’t tell very much about the new iPad mini from the leaked picture although it does seemingly show that Apple’s newest mini tablet will indeed have the Touch ID fingerprint scanning system that was first unveiled with the iPhone 5s.
