Windows on ARMMicrosoft is expected to take the wraps off a new Surface model this month, but little is known about the device that could become the smaller tablet ever sold by the Redmond-based take giant.


Reportedly called Surface Mini, the new device could use a Qualcomm processor, instead of a chip developed by Nvidia, according to a reporting published today by Bloomberg and citing people close to the matter.

Nvidia has until now provided Microsoft with Tegra chips for ARM-based Surface models, including both the Surface RT and the Surface 2, but it appears that Redmond has decided to switch to Qualcomm processors because they're said to be better optimized for longer battery life.
