A budget Microsoft Surface tablet could arrive this week

Microsoft's budget Surface tablet will allegedly come in at about $US399 and arrive 13 July.

Rumours around a new Microsoft Surface device, specifically a budget Surface tablet, have been floating around for a few months. Now, though, fresh whispers suggest that we could see the announcement of a new cheap Microsoft Surface device relatively soon.

 

According to TechRadar's sources and a document partially posted to Reddit, Microsoft's budget Surface tablet could go on sale as soon as Friday 13 July. The document explained that Microsoft Stores are preparing a "New Microsoft Hardware Display and Type Cover set on Friday, 7/13", implying new hardware being displayed by the end of this week.

If true, this would be a surprise announcement from Microsoft and a quiet launch for a brand-new product in the Surface family.

Alternative options are thin on the ground. Beyond a hardware refresh for Microsoft's other Surface devices, the "Type Cover set" line suggests that it has to be a Surface tablet coming to market.
