We have seen multiple reports in the past that Microsoft is planning to release a 8-inch Surface RT device this year. Digitimes today reported some more information about the upcoming device. They expect 8-inch Surface RT device will be launched in June with the price tag between US$249-299 and a 10.x-inch model as early as the third quarter of 2013.
The 8-inch Surface will use touch panels supplied by Samsung Electronics and Nvidia-developed processors, and Taiwan-based ODM Pegatron will be responsible for production, the sources said.
If the above report turns out to be true, we can expect Microsoft giving away new Surface RT devices to developers at BUILD conference in June.
