Microsoft reportedly developing 7-inch Surface tablet

Microsoft is currently developing a new lineup of its Surface tablets, which is rumoured to include a 7″ tablet that is expected to go into mass production later this year.

It has been reported that the 7-inch tablets weren’t part of the company’s strategy last year, but Microsoft realised it needed to respond to the rapidly growing popularity of smaller tablets like Google’s 7-inch Nexus and the 7.9-inch iPad Mini which were both launched last year. And with half of the tablet computers shipped in the fourth quarter smaller than 8 inches, it isn’t surprising it chose to jump on the bandwagon.

However, Microsoft are yet to comment.
