    The next iteration of Surface Pro will come out with Win 10, and roughly at the same time, that's for sure. However, I think the Mini was canned for good, and MS abandoned the small form factor market, especially since Win 8.1 is free on small tablets. ( see: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2139...iot-and-small-mobile-devices-but-not-pcs.html )

    On the other hand, a tablet with a 14" display is very possible, and will follow the trend from SP1,2 to SP3.

    Although I know this will never happen I would really love seeing a larger screen SP4 with a Yoga Style keyboard and 3:2 aspect ratio. I'd never have traded my Yoga 2 Pro in for an SP3 in the first place if Lenovo weren't such idiots about refusing to include a digitizer in their "Pro" product.

    I'm a little surprised Logitech hasn't made a keyboard for the Surface, one that uses the keyboard connector not Bluetooth.

    Logitech Keyboard, Surface Type Cover Hinge and connector or a mechanical hinge model + battery.
    They make a new iPad keyboard about every quarter... :)
