Wednesday 7 May 2014 | 10:37 CET | News
Microsoft is planning to introduce a new, smaller version of its Surface tablet on 20 May. The device will use Qualcomm processors for the first time, people with knowledge of the plans told Bloomberg. At the event planned in New York, Microsoft will also take the wraps off other new Surface models, including ones powered by Intel processors, the report said. Microsoft's previous version of Surface ran Nvidia chips based on ARM technology. Microsoft's Windows had 3.4 percent of the tablet market in 2013, according to researcher IDC. For the Surface tablet, the share was 1 percent.
