The Microsoft Surface Mini tablet has been in the rumor mill for a rather long time but now it looks like the wait is almost over. Vostrostone, an electronics wholesaler shortly known as VSTN, has just revealed a few accessories for the upcoming Windows tablet on Amazon and these products will be available starting May 18. Obviously, Microsoft's Surface Mini should arrive around that date.
Unfortunately, the images of these cases for the Microsoft Surface Mini do not reveal much of the slate's design and it is also possible for these photos to show a placeholder - according to ZDNet, the 8-inch Lenovo Windows slate already available on the market.
While the "Smart Cover Case" for Microsoft Surface Mini from VSTN is available in red, blue, gray and black, the detachable Bluetooth Keyboard portfolio case also added on Amazon by the wholesaler is only available in black. Its price is $32.99 USD (plus shipping), while a black case alone is valued at $9.99 USD (plus shipping). The red, blue and gray cases can be pre-ordered at $10.99 USD, plus shipping.
Contacted by Mary Jo Foley, a Microsoft spokesperson only said "We have nothing to share," but since the products mentioned above are still listed on Amazon, it is almost certain that Surface Mini will arrive in mid-May, if not earlier.
