Microsoft teases two new Surface models for 2014

Microsoft Surface Pro Surface RT Release Date

Microsoft isn’t letting disappointing first-generation sales stop it from releasing new versions of its Surface tablet. ZDNet on Wednesday spotted a new Microsoft product roadmap slide for 2014, which the company is billing as its “biggest year for innovation ever.” Among other things, the slide promises new versions of both the Surface Pro tablet and the Surface RT tablet sometime next year. Although Microsoft didn’t go into many details about what the new Surface models would include, it did vow that they would at least feature “new accessories and accessory colors.” The slide should also put to rest the notion that Microsoft plans on giving up on Windows RT, its much-maligned tablet-centric operating system that has so far struggled to attract either consumers or OEMs.
