    I am not sure this suggests a new edition of the Surface. And, if I am not mistaken, MJ over at ZDN pretty much leave the issue wide open - though I can't imagine what new accessories the Surface can have aside from docks, keyboard + battery combos etc. I can see how firmware updates can refine/ optimize the current line. That said, I do hope MS does issue a newer version of the RT - with a better processor and perhaps by opening up RT OS a bit to make it a bit more flexible (for example, to enable the use of USD Ethernet adapters etc.).

    MJF has been hinting about a new RT. She likes her RT as much as I do, I think :D

    All great updates and releases, but I don't see anything that screams new tablets. But we'll see them soon:)

    Also remember that Microsoft's Fiscal year started July 1st, so that means we could see a new Surface between now and June 30th, 2014.

    Yeah, but I am not looking forward to a 7-9 inch RT though. I like the 10" form factor - pretty much the way it is, perhaps with an even better battery and most definitely a better resolution.

    I think we may see 2 new Surface RT tablets, one running on the Qualcomm snapdragon sporting the 7 or 8" Screen with 4G and one running the NVidia Tegra4 running the 10.6" that will be WiFi Only. If I were to venture further into speculation, the smaller will be 1280x800 and the 10.6 will be Full HD. :)

    Wouldn't the 256 be one update? Another similar upate for the RT might make two.

    The 256GB had already been released prior to the start of FY14 (July 1, 2013).
