The new tablets are said to be between seven and nine inches in size. The Wall Street Journal reported similar information last month that claimed Microsoft plans to release a seven-inch version of the Surface later this year.
The analysis company NPD Displaysearch also tells Cnet that Microsoft is preparing to release a new model of Surface that has a 7.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1,400 x 1,050 pixels. The data from NPD Displaysearch is said to come from subcontractors to Microsoft.
However, NPD Displaysearch claims that the 7.5-inch model won’t be released until early next year as Microsoft tries to bring down manufacturing costs.
Microsoft has not commented on the data to Cnet.
