The company will be trying to recover from a lackluster launch of its Surface RT tablet, competing against the iPad and other ARM-based tablets, and also make new inroads for the Surface Pro tablet. Over the weekend, Neowin reported that the company will be launching a new Surface dock in an attempt to make it easier to use the Surface as a hybrid tablet/desktop.
Called the Surface Pro 2, Microsoft’s new tablet will reportedly be powered by Intel’s newest Haswell-based Core i5 chip, which should improve battery life by a few hours. In addition, the Surface Pro 2 will have its RAM increased from 4GB to 8GB.
Paul Thurrott at WinSuperSite also reported previously that the Surface Pro 2 will have a new “integrated two-position kickstand.”
