A source close to Microsoft has posted on his official account of Twitter that Redmond will launch three new models and different generation of its hybrid ‘Surface’ in 2013.
Some sites specialized in technology remember that a few days Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, said he will not let the hardware or anything else be a barrier to innovation in his company, thereby conceding that Microsoft had built very late to the tablet game.
Experts suggest that therefore makes sense that the company would soon catch up with Surface and freshly baked Windows 8. This is reinforced by the great effort and monetary investment that the company has demonstrated in touch technology, operating system and its entry into the world of hardware manufacturing.
According to this source close ‘( @ MS_Nerd ), the first tablet to be launched in 2013 would be an improved version of the Surface RT. Surface is the RT2 with a Qualcomm processor instead of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip.
The second is an update to the Microsoft Surface Pro that would measure 10.6 inches to 11.6 inches .
There is also speculation about a Living Book with a display of 14.6 inches and an Intel processor.
The size of these alleged tablet is very large compared to those that exist in the market and succeed. In fact, so far is the 9.7-inch iPad 4, or the Google and Amazon tablets ranging between seven and eight inches.
However, the current Surface is 10.6 inches, a little more than the last tablet presented by Google, the Nexus 10, which belongs to the Nexus family and has a 10-inch screen. It will have to wait for the official Microsoft announcement.
