Microsoft already at work on Surface tablet sequel

August 7th, 2012 at 1:10 PM

The first Surface tablet isn’t due to be released until October 26th, but that hasn’t stopped Microsoft (MSFT) from looking ahead to the next version of its iPad rival. TechRadar has spotted Microsoft job postings showing the company is looking for more people to join its “Surface Team” and that the company is already “building the next generation” of tablets.

TechRadar says that Microsoft isn’t just looking for a few extra software engineers for the next-generation Surface, either. Rather, it’s looking to fill several positions that range from “mechanical engineers to component specialists and materials experts to driver developers and audio engineers (plus manufacturing and packaging designers), in addition to the substantial team of industrial designers and engineers already on the Surface team.”

So it would seem that despite the moans of protest from its OEM partners, Microsoft really plans to go all-in on the Surface to create a legitimate rival to the iPad.
