Remember the day Microsoft Surface Pro 3 released? Yeah, that was not something we actually expect. I mean, before that, we had months (or even year) of rumors about Surface Mini. Now, don’t get me wrong, I was glad to see the surface (pun intended) of the Pro 3, the Mini was what we expected. The rumors after that day was the Service and Device department canceled the launch to wait for some new update of the Office Touch version to come out. However, that was just rumor, at that point, we didn’t even know if such device exists? Well, Microsoft has confirmed it quite hilarious.
In the Surface Pro 3 manual, there were many interactions and instruction that related to both the Surface Pro 3 and the Surface Mini, and this might as well, reveals some feature about the Mini. For example, the use of the Pen its interaction with the screen. “Bluetooth technology links your Surface Pen to your Surface Mini or Surface Pro 3,” as the manual explains how the Pen works, or even some simple instruction like change the rotation of the screen. So, what do we know now about the Mini? Well, beside the fact that the display would be around 7 to 8 inches, and we know that most functions of the Pen from the Surface Pro 3 exist in the Surface Mini.
There are still some questions, like will it run full Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 RT? Would it have kick stand or not? How will it be priced? Well, stay tune for more update on Surface Mini.
