This could probably means that Microsoft will be seen using Qualcomm's Ultra Sound Note technology or NVIDIA's Tegra-based note tech.Moreover, the device will include Wacom digitizer support, which shouldn't be a surprise.

From a design point of view, the Surface Mini will reportedly stick to Microsoft's Surface range. Earlier reports suggested that the device would feature a built-in kickstand, though this very small-sized tablet may notnecessarily have this feature.

Talking about the release date, it is widely believed that Microsoft considered launching the Surface Mini in late last year but cancelled it when the Surface 2 release messed up with supply issues.

As of now, there are no concrete details available as to when Microsoft will release the Surface Mini.

With the 8-inch Surface Mini on the cards, Microsoft will likely to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 8.4. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
