New Surface tablets are expected to be unveiled at Microsoft's (MSFT -0.1%) June 26-28 BUILD developer's conference, sometime-accurate Digitimes reports - if true, look for a model running on an Intel Haswell CPU. The WSJ has already reported 7" Surface tablets are in the works. IDC just estimated Q1 Surface shipments only totaled 900K, and Bloomberg reported in March 1.5M Surface units had been sold since the tablet line's Oct. launch. OEM hardware sales will probably play a bigger role in determining Windows 8's fate in the tablet market than the Surface line.
