Microsoft’s Surface tablet might have failed to take a real bite out of Apple’s share of the U.S. tablet market, but the Redmond, Wash. company hasn’t given up yet. Instead, Microsoft appears set to unveil an iPad mini-competing Surface tablet at a special media event scheduled for May 20.
Though little concerning Microsoft’s anticipated announcements has been confirmed, the invitation sent to members of the media seems to say it all: “Join us for a small gathering” is the main text on the digital invitation, which The Wall Street Journal’s Joanna Stern recently posted to Twitter.
It appears that a small-size Surface could be the latest in this growing line, and as such it will certainly be interesting to see what Microsoft is planning on bringing to the table. Though at this point, it seems it’ll take more than a “Surface mini” to draw customers away from choosing Apple’s celebrated iPad.
