New report from the Asian supply chain says that Microsoft will launch a small 8-inch Surface tablet next month.

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.

According to the report Pegatron will assemble the 8-inch Surface. The new Surface is supposed to be powered by an NVIDIA cpu and the screen comes from Samsung.

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.
