Microsoft Surface Mini to be unveiled on May 20th?

Microsoft has started sending out invites for a “small gathering” taking place on May 20th in the New York City. During the upcoming Surface-themed event we expect to see the new Microsoft tablet unveiled. Yup, we’re hoping to see the Surface Mini which will run the full-blown Windows 8 rather than Windows RT. Or we may get to see two different version, “standard” with Windows RT, and “Pro” with regular Windows 8.1.

This isn’t the first time we’re mentioning the Surface Mini — this device has already been mentioned on IntoMobile in the past. We are looking forward to see it emerging as mobile warrior’s next best friend. Hopefully, the Redmond giant will opt for more powerful Core i5 chip in the “Pro” variant, allowing us to dump our laptops and “go small,” along the way.

We’ll get back to you with more details as soon as we get ’em. Stay tuned…

    I hope microsoft offers a intel atom version as well as a ARMS CPU version but there are Rumors it will use a “ARMS CPU”. The good thing is Microsoft is working on an APPS programming code that allows apps that can run on Windows smart phones and Windows on ARM CPU tablets. this is logical because ALL Windows smart phones USE ARMS CPU’S. This means more and better Apps for the Windows on arms Tablets because APPS developers can easily make an app that runs on a Windows smart phone or a Windows Tablet that use ARMS CPU’s. therefore the old Windows RT OS will DIE for a better one but will still run OLD windows RT APPS.
