After a number of rumors indicating that Microsoft was working on a 7-inch tablet, the company has come out to indicate that it has plans to unveil smaller tablets running their Windows Operating System. The move by Microsoft towards smaller tablets will make a lot of sense for the company given that most people these days prefer smaller tablets to bigger ones.
Tech giants such as Apple and Samsung already have smaller tablets that seem to sell very well across the board and it seems like Microsoft is missing out here since they currently do not have smaller tablets to compete with these companies.
The news that Microsoft was working with some of its partners to unveil a smaller tablet was revealed by the company’s CFO Peter Klein on Thursday. Mr. Klein also added that the company was not only focusing on making the tablets smaller, but cheaper as well.
As for availability of these tablets, Microsoft has not indicated when the devices will be out or even what sizes we are looking at but we should definitely expect them later this year or early next year.
