Conceivable 7-inch Surface Pro specs

Having already discussed the mixed reaction that Microsoft’s latest device has been receiving, as well as the possibility of a Surface phone being released in order to compete in a very lucrative market, it comes as no surprise that a smaller Surface Pro is in the works.

It was obvious that Microsoft would consider releasing a 7-inch Surface Pro, as they have seen the success Amazon, ASUS and Apple have had with the Kindle Fire HD, Nexus 7 and the iPad mini. However, you have to wonder if Microsoft will be able to replicate the success these three companies have had with their smaller tablets?

The full-size Pro is not a bad device, there are just a few issues that have to be ironed out, but this is the same with most new products. As for sales, while they have not been as impressive as Microsoft would have hoped, you have to remember the release date was not the greatest timing. If the smaller Pro is released at the right time and the specs are spot on for this cheaper market, then Microsoft could be on to something.

However, those 7-inch Surface Pro specs need to be conceivable if they want it to be a success. The Surface Pro mini will need to have a great battery life, and a simple Metro interface will help to deliver that. Resolution will need to be Retina standard, as the iPad mini 2 is expected to see this upgrade later this year. Maybe a Tegra 4 chip, as many upcoming 7-inch tablets will be getting this processor. Another added feature that could help the 7-inch Pro sell is a choice of colors, as we know how young consumers love those funky colors.

These are just a few ideas, but we’d love for you to tell us what specification do you think the smaller Surface Pro will need in order to compete in this competitive market? Microsoft will not have it easy, as the 7-inch Pro is expected to release around the same time as the iPad mini 2, well that’s according to a WSJ report.
