Surface vice president Panos Panay has dropped a huge hint that Microsoft will launch smaller tablets in due course.

Panay was demonstrating the new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets with Windows hardware scientist Stevie Bathiche at the Microsoft store in Seattle’s University Village on Monday, when he appeared to confirm the possibility of a Surface Mini.  

“We have a lot of great things that we are thinking about and working on, and there are multiple aspect ratios and sizes and awesome things to come from Surface,” said Panay. His comments were first reported by GeekWire.

The Surface vice president also reiterated that a LTE-enabled version of the Surface 2 will be coming early next year but made it clear that this option won’t be available with the surface 2 Pro.
