With the introduction of the Surface Pro 3, many were expecting Microsoft to announce the arrival of a smaller version of the Surface as well. There have been some reports that Microsoft cancelled the launch of their mini tablet just days before the Surface Pro 3 event; yet Microsoft has never officially confirmed that they have a mini version of the Surface in the works.
The rumors of a Surface Mini have come back and have all but been confirmed by some oversight on Microsofts part. In the user manual for the Surface Pro 3 there are a few references to the Surface Mini; “You’ll pair your new pen with Surface Mini a little later during setup,” is found in the new surface pen section and another references are found throughout. Microsoft has yet to make a comment on the mentions of the Surface Mini in the user manuals or whether or not they still plan on producing and releasing their mini to the masses.
