A teasing side to Microsoft seems to have come out in recent times. Last week, the company sent out invites to journalists regarding a “small” event for the 20th of May. Naturally, many of us took that as a teaser for the much talked about/rumored Surface Mini. Yesterday, though, it seems that the copywriters over at Microsoft released another teaser via its Support Page, specifically in a post for the Windows 8.1 update.
The article had a line referring to the Surface Pro 3: “adds support to the Surface Pro 3 camera.” I say had because since tech news sites picked up on that, the article has been revised.
While the reference may have been a real teaser, The Verge also points out that it could have been an honest typo. After all, the numbers 2 and 3 are right next to each other on the keyboard, right? Then again, you’d expect such a company to have a strict set of proofreading eyes. Additionally, if it were only a typo, then it could have been easily corrected – as opposed to pulling out the article.
Whatever the case may be, we already know that we are supposed to see an Intel-based Surface in the near future. Could this be the “teased” Surface Pro 3?
Currently, the Surface Pro 2 seems to be doing all right, with its Haswell processor. It also has its solid magnesium body going for it, not to mention its display, which is nothing to scoff at. The OS is also an improvement over its predecessor, but on the downside, the it’s still clunky compared to other tablets out there (hence the highly likely possibility of the Surface Mini being unveiled on the 20th?). Then there is the matter of the price, which is still considered to be in the high range.
We can speculate all we want about whether Microsoft accidentally (or purposely) referred to the Surface Pro 3 or someone made a typo, but for sure, we’ll be all eyes and ears next week for the event.
Which would you rather get, a Surface Pro 3 or a Surface Mini?
