Microsoft could be working on their next Surface tablet

Microsoft's next Surface tablet may be in the 7-9" range and could be coming this June.

Microsoft's Surface tablet was only released this past October, and although it hasn't received glowing success, the folks over at Redmond could be hard at work on a successor.

According to a report by Digitimes, which cites their various supply sources, Microsoft is working on a next-generation Surface tablet with a display in the 7-9" range. This is supposedly to capture the ever-growing smaller tablet segment, and to boost sales where the larger, 10.6" Surface tablet has failed. In addition, the company appears to be taking a cautious approach to promotions for the new tablet, especially in lieu of the original Surface only amassing 1.5 million of the expected 3-4 million units.

Exact hardware details of the new device are so far unknown, but NVIDIA and Intel already appear to be on board for the CPU while Samsung and LG are in on the display. Fortunately, we won't have to wait too long to find out more about the device, as it is expected to be unveiled at the Microsoft Build Developer Conference from June 26th-28th.
