Microsoft Surface 2 – Release Date, Screen Size, Price and Other Rumors

Microsoft Surface 2 – Rumored Release Date and Other Info


The first Microsoft Surface 2-related rumors have made their way to the blogosphere back in December 2012, which was a bit ridiculous considering the fact that the Surface RT was pretty fresh and the Pro model wasn’t even available for purchase.

In any case, six months have passed since these whispers reached our ears, and now fresh rumors concerning the Surface 2 have popped-up.

We’re past the point in time where leaks concerning a Surface sequel are premature, so let’s get a bit more serious and see what these new reports are claiming.

We’ll begin by discussing the alleged specs of this particular device. Allegedly, the upcoming Surface 2 will deliver a display that will measure somewhere between 7 and 9 inches. Other sources have claimed that Microsoft has already started outsourcing screen parts, and that the Surface 2 will boast a 7.5 inch panel with a resolution of 1400 x 1050.

As far as the Microsoft Surface 2 release date goes, opinions are mixed. Sources of PocketNow have suggested that the upcoming Microsoft slate will be unveiled during the Build Developer Conference which will take place on June 26th-28th 2013 and released, of course, sometime in 2013


However, analysts predict that the Surface 2 will not see the light of day until sometime in 2014. According to their sayings, Microsoft will not start mass producing the tablet until early next year.

Last but not least, word on the street is that the gadget will hit the market at the price of $400 give or take. If that’s going to be the case, the competition will continue to have the upper-hand in terms of pricing, but still, it would increase Microsoft’s chances of success when compared to the original Surface price tags. Any thoughts?

Thanks PocketNow for the heads-up regarding the Microsoft Surface 2 release date and specs.

    I don’t have any substantial proof or even rumours to contribute, but here’s what I’d like to see in the Surface Pro 2:
    Better battery (at least 7 hours of active use)
    Haswell
    Same screen size, or perhaps an inch bigger. The 7′ form factor just wouldn’t suit a proper pc
