Not too long ago we started hearing rumors of a potential Surface Mini product. Eventually that was confirmed, although it turns out the tab will come sometime next year. According to a new report, that may not be all that is coming next year. If the report is accurate, then Microsoft will be following Samsung's example in the tablet world and plans to spam several different versions, models, shapes and sizes of Surface products, rather than just a couple models like Apple.
So far this strategy flies in the face of what Microsoft has done up to this point, but that doesn't mean that a paradigm shift in tactics isn't valid. Supposedly, Microsoft Surface boss Panos Panay himself confirmed the eventual release of Surface models with multiple different sizes and aspect ratios. It looks like Microsoft doesn't want to just try and compete with Apple's iPad, but also wants to go after marketshare from Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire HDX and HD series.
What do you guys think? Is this a bold move by Microsoft or a bad idea?
