Microsoft it set to announce its 2nd-gen Surface RT tablet in June, according to supply chain sources.

The sources told publication DigiTimes that the estimated price for the 8-inch Surface RT will be between $249-299.

Taiwan-based makers told the site that the 8-inch tablet will use touch panels supplied by Samsung and Nvidia-developed processors.

The sources also claim there is an additional Microsoft tablet on the way that will be 10.’something’-inches in size, which will probably be smaller than the 10.6-inch model. This particular version is expected as early as the third quarter of 2013.

Earlier rumours suggested that Microsoft would actually release a 7-inch Surface tablet this year to compete with the likes of the iPad Mini and the Nexus 7.
