A report from Bloomberg claims that it is not only Surface Mini that will be announced on 20th May, but Microsoft may have more Surface announcements up its sleeve. While Surface Mini is confirmed to run Windows RT and will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, other Surface Tablets will run on Intel’s processors as per the report, so Microsoft may make some Windows 8.1 Tablets public as well.

As per the report,
Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) is planning to introduce a new, smaller version of its Surface that will use Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM) processors for the first time, according to people with knowledge of the companies’ plans, a move that ends Nvidia (NVDA) Corp.’s run as a chip supplier to the tablet.
Microsoft will unveil the new device at an event in New York on May 20, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. Microsoft will also take the wraps off other new Surface models at the event, including ones powered by Intel Corp. processors, the people said. Microsoft previously had a version of Surface with Nvidia chips that use ARM Holdings Plc technology.
