Microsoft schedules Surface Mini event

Written by Fudzilla staff



May 20

Microsoft is planning to host an event on May 20 to ‘discuss’ the rumoured Surface Mini. According to the Register the invites have already gone out, but we didn’t get one since Fudzilla is considered too close to Apple. 

This is the second credible Surface Mini rumour to surface over the last month, pardon the pun. Back in April a wholesaler listed a smart cover for the Surface Mini. It said the cover would start shipping on May 18. So far Microsoft has managed to keep the spec under wraps and we must say we are rather impressed. We usually get to see a flood of leaks ahead of high profile announcements, but so far we’ve got nothing on the Surface Mini. In fact, we are still not sure whether it’s an x86 or ARM device, although most industry watchers expect an x86 device (Bay Trail-T to be specific).

Then again it could pack an AMD Mullins, or Nvidia’s Tegra K1, or any of a range of MediaTek chips – we simply don’t know for sure. Now that we finally have competitive x86 tablet parts from two manufacturers, the case for ARM Windows tablets is not an easy one to make, so we’re leaning toward an x86 part, too.
