Most of the consumer electronics companies are busy showing off their products at CES happening in the US this week. Microsoft last year decided to move away from CES since its timing didn’t align with Microsoft’s product cycle. If you were really missing some news from Microsoft for CES, consider this as your savior. @MSFTnerd today tweeted about some of Microsoft’s future plans.
- Microsoft is bringing InstantGo support for BayTrail+, Mullins and other SoCs with Windows 8.1 Update 1.
- Microsoft is planning to bring Surface 3 powered by Nvidia Tegra K1 processor with Denver CPU (64-bit ARMv8) in end of 2014.
- You can expect Surface Mini and LTE versions of Surface 2 before the end of 2014.
- Microsoft is planning to use AMDs upcoming Mullins CPU instead of their custom designed chip for its upcoming Xbox TV.
- Microsoft’s previous plans to release Surface notebook is on hold for now.
