An analyst claims to have some of the details of Microsoft Surface 2

Microsoft has once again come at the centre of media attention after an industry analyst claims that they have some information of the much-rumored smaller version of the Microsoft Surface Windows tablet that is allegedly in development.
According to Richard Shim with NPD DisplaySearch, the Microsoft Surface 2 could have a 7.5-inch display with 1400 x 1050 resolution and pixel density of 233ppi.
On the contrary, the first generation of Surface Windows, Surface Pro, has a 10.6-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 that gives it a pixel density of 208ppi.
The Surface RT also has the same screen size. The main difference between Surface Pro and RT is its resolution and pixel density. Unlike the Surface Pro, it has 1366 x 768 resolution and 148ppi.
May be Microsoft has taken the decision to make smaller and less expensive tablet PCs to see its increasing demand over their lager counterparts.
According to the analyst, Microsoft is working to make the device as inexpensive as possible. It has come to know from a separate unconfirmed report that this device could be as low as $400.
Shim did not specify whether this device will run Windows RT or Windows 8 Pro.
