The next version of Surface RT will be with a processor from Qualcomm
Microsoft is working on updating the Surface RT tablet, which will use the Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, according to Bloomberg. This tablet can connect to mobile networks – a feature that is not found in current device revision. In addition, NVIDIA will continue to provide their processors for some versions of the tablet.
It is not clear when we will see a new device, but surely it will happen at the end of this year. Next week in San Francisco will host a conference Build, which may be a presentation of the tablet, while sales likely to begin in the fall with the release of Windows 8.1.
Am according to The Verge, Microsoft is testing a prototype of the Surface RT with Windows RT 8.1 and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, which is equipped with LTE module. Meanwhile, Microsoft released a cheaper unit of the current tablet, which also suggests the imminent arrival of his successor. Visitors to a recent conference Tech-Ed in America had the opportunity to buy the tablet version with 64 GB of memory and a Touch Cover accessory for just $ 100, and next week will begin selling special editions for educational institutions, for which the tablet will cost $ 200.
