Microsoft preparing to launch 7-inch tablet: Report

 

Microsoft is developing a new lineup of its surface tablets by working on a launch of 7-inch version.

 

According to report, the small screen tablet is apparently hotter that the full blown 10-inch devices.

 

“Half of the tablet computers shipped in the fourth quarter was smaller than 8 inches, according to research firm IDC,” said report. Microsoft has reduced the minimum display resolution requirement for Windows 8 from 1,366x768 to 1,024x768 pixels. Most of the budget 7-inch tablets have a resolution of 1024x768 pixels.

 

Microsoft entered the tablet hardware business with the launch of Surface Pro and RT tablets in 2012.

 

In terms of its specifications, the Surface RT tablet is 0.37-inches thin and comes in 32/64GB storage variants. It sports a 10.6" ClearType HD Display with a 1366x768 pixels resolution. A quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU coupled with 2GB RAM powers it. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity options.

 

Where, the Surface Pro is 0.53-inches thin, comes in 64/128GB storage capacity and has a 10.6" ClearType Full HD display. It runs on a 3rd Gen Intel Core i5 processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000 accompanied with 4GB RAM. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy technology as well. More details about the 7-inch tablet are awaited.
