DigiTimes heard rumors that Microsoft cancelled the production of a Surface Mini tablet due to fierce competition in this market segment as well as negative responses from brand vendor clients. The compact tablet was reportedly ready for production in May but got cancelled at the last moment.
Microsoft has finished developing the Surface Mini and also completed the product tests; however, mass production did not start as scheduled in May, the sources said, adding Microsoft still paid the costs for the module development and production equipment, the sources said.

The Surface Mini reportedly features a 7.5- to 8-inch display, an ARM processors, OneNote and Windows RT 8.1 operating system, the sources noted.

Compared to other small-size tablets in the market, the Surface Mini's specifications have nothing in particular to boost its competitiveness and therefore Microsoft has decided to postpone the tablet's launch and may not even launch it to the market at all, the sources said.
