DigiTimes heard Microsoft is expected to introduce its second-generation Surface tablets at the Microsoft Build Developer Conference, which will be hosted from June 26-28. The site's sources said the new Surface devices will be 7" to 9" exclusively to meet the rising demand for smaller tablet devices, and aded that Microsoft is taking a cautious attitude over promotions for its second-generation models because sales of the current generation were much poorer than anticipated. The Surface tablets achieve sales of 1.5 million units (1 million for Surface RT and 0.5 million for Surface Pro), less than half of the original expectations of 3-4 million units.
Microsoft retained most of its component suppliers from the first-generation models for the second-generation ones with Pegatron Technology staying as the devices' manufacturer. Chassis are supplied by Ju Teng, switching from China-based Chungnam Precision Casing; displays are supplied by Samsung Electronics and LG Display, glass Corning, batteries LG Chem, processors Intel and Nvidia, keyboards Chicony Electronics and Ko Ja (Cayman) and touch panels TPK and Youngfast, the sources noted. However, these component makers have all declined to comment about Surface shipments.
