It's been as long as two years in the making, but Microsoft's Surface Mini may finally be ready to venture outside of the company's labs. Microsoft has sent out invitations to a Surface event on May 20th with the tagline "join us for a small gathering." Yeah -- join them for a small tablet too, right?
So, what should we expect? A 7-inch version of Microsoft's own Windows 8 tablet line has been rumoured for ages, but interesting rumours have also pointed to a device with a 4:3 screen ratio -- closer to that of the iPad than the exiting Surface devices. Screen size and resolution for that particular rumour sits at 7.5-inches and 1440 x 1080. A Qualcomm processor is expected to feature, which would rule out support for legacy desktop applications.
