Microsoft flopped with the Surface RT and the Surface Pro may have been an admirable if somewhat unsuccessful attempt at a revamp, but that has not stopped the optimism at Redmond.
The company believes they are still in the running to become one of the biggest tablet distributors by 2014, hopefully selling 25 million Surface tablets in a year.
We have already heard rumours of a new line of Surface tablets, one running Windows 8 and a smaller seven-inch tablet running Windows RT, with the same price tag as the Nexus 7.
Perhaps Microsoft believe marketing to a budget audience could be the best decision, if a Windows RT tablet is developed for a minimal amount of money, it may take off with audiences.
However, we have heard others rumours about Microsoft scrapping Windows RT or at least changing the formula to resemble Windows 8, with all the desktop applications capable of running on RT.
We will have to wait and see what Redmond have in store this year and next.
