Microsoft is working on a new $400 United States dollars budget Surface tablet created to compete with Apple's lowest-end iPad, according to a new report stemming from Bloomberg's often reliable Mark Gurman. The new range of Surface tablets from the company is expected to be unveiled in the second half of the year.
Microsoft is developing a new Surface tablet that will have a ten inch screen and will retail for $400.
Outrage over racial slur printed on Starbucks cup
The barista had called the police after one of the black men asked to use the bathroom without making a purchase. A spokesperson for Starbucks told INSIDER that "this kind of mistake is unacceptable".
Microsoft has since switched to pro-orientated tablets - e.g. the more expensive Surface Pro line. They will use USB Type-C connections, which Microsoft hasn't included on the Surface Pro yet (but first used on the Surface Book 2 last year). Meanwhile, the 13.5 hours of battery life offered by the most recent Surface Pro put this in the shade. There'll also be a 128GB version with LTE connectivity, the report says. It will be accompanied by more affordable versions of Microsoft's keyboard cover, mouse, and Surface Pen.
Each model will have a 10-inch screen, which is comparable to the standard iPad, though it's noticeably smaller than the Surface Pro laptops. Microsoft fans have been waiting for more news about their Surface 4 replacement but we have not heard anything yet. The tablets will run Windows 10 Pro out of the box, although there's no word as to whether S Mode will be enabled by default. In terms of graphics and processors, Intel is on tap to supply both. Hopefully, the tech giant will be able to introduce some product diversification if the latest rumor turns out to be true.

His team-mate Florian Thauvin, who has excelled at Marseille after an unhappy spell at Newcastle, is in the squad. But as it is muscular, there is a significant risk of further issues.
The company's supposedly upcoming $400 Surface tablet is meant to buck this trend, according to Bloomberg, as Microsoft ditches is signature square aesthetic for a friendlier, rounder design. Since then, Microsoft has positioned its Surface devices for the business and professional markets. Where the hell was the Surface tablet?
