It looks like there will be a follow-up model to Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has revealed that his company is “working really hard” on a second-generation tablet.

Speaking to CNET on Thursday, Huang detailed plans for the new model and confirmed that it will come with Outlook, which took some time to come to the original tablet.

"It is the killer app for Windows," said Huang.

"Now we're going to bring it with the second-generation Surface. We're working really hard on it, and we hope that it's going to be a big success."

Despite having being forced into discounting the Surface RT and spending $900 million on unsold stock, Microsoft seems intent on persevering with the Windows RT tablet.

Previous reports have indicated that Microsoft is working on two new Surface tablets, including one which may have a smaller, 8-inch screen.
