The first wave of the Microsoft Surface tablets have a 10.6-inch screen. Obviously Microsoft wants to also compete in the smaller screen tablet segment. This could already happen next month. According to Digitimes , their supply chain sources say that Microsoft will launch an 8-inch Surface tablet in June.
Microsoft needs to offer the new small Surface at an attractive low price, which requires that the new 8-inch tablet will run Windows 8 RT. The 10-inch Surface RT with 32GB sells for $499. I assume Microsoft will offer the 8-inch at $299.
