Windows Central has posted some exclusive images that it has obtained of Microsoft’s cancelled Surface Mini tablet. Back in 2014, Microsoft intended to announce a Surface Mini tablet along with the Surface Pro 3. However, the smaller tablet was never released, despite being mentioned in the Surface Pro 3 user manual. Apparently, Microsoft decided to cancel the project because it thought that the Mini didn’t have enough unique selling points.

The photos obtained by Windows Central show that the Surface Mini looks a lot like a smaller Surface Pro 3 in portrait mode. Windows Central says that the outer casing of the Mini “feels soft and felt-like.”

The Mini has a built-in kickstand in landscape mode, with angled edges to make it easier to hold when using the Surface Pen, which makes a lot of sense considering that Microsoft was said to be intending to market the Surface Mini as an ideal...

Business Insider reports that Microsoft general manager for Surface, Ryan Gavin, has told them that the iPad Pro was a “clear example” of Apple following Microsoft and not the other way round.
Gavin conceded that Microsoft does keep an eye on its competition, but as far as actually assembling the Surface hardware is concerned, “we don’t really look at Apple.”

Speaking during Microsoft’s Studio Space event at London Tech Week, Gavin said that Microsoft’s main reason for creating the Surface Laptop was because “our customers wanted it.”

Panay also took the opportunity to announce that all four Surface Laptop colours are now available in 17 new markets, with Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, and Graphite Gold joining Platinum as options...

With the E3 gaming expo taking place this week in Los Angeles there have been lots of exiting announcements about forthcoming PC games, in particular Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, which was announced exclusively for Windows 10, with a closed beta due to start very soon that can be signed up for at AgeOfEmpires.com.

Age of Empires first appeared on PC back in 1997, and along the way the much-loved series has explored human civilisation up until Colonial America. It feels like it’s been away for far too long, so it’s great to have it back!
