FCC filings give further credence to new $400 Surface reports

Microsoft's rumored budget Surface appears to have passed through the FCC

We've suspected for a while that Intel is still supposed to supply the processors for this low-priced Microsoft Surface family, a theory supported by recently published FCC certification documents.

The FCC paperwork doesn't include pictures or full specs of the device-those parts are kept confidential for now-but it does disclose a few details that give some hints about the new device.

However, this "portable computing device" (a term Microsoft used in its regulator applications previously to describe the Surface line) may be sporting an Intel-based CPU rather than the Qualcomm ARM processor we previously thought a cheaper Surface model would receive.

There's also mention of a 24W power supply - two-thirds the power of the existing 36W supply for the Surface Pro - which heavily suggests this is a more lightweight and economical tablet.

China Mobile shares fell 2.2% to HK$68.20 as of 1:02 pm in Hong Kong , while the Hang Seng Index was 2.8% lower. China and the US continue to spar over larger trade issues, raising concerns of a looming global trade war.

The smaller Surface model will reportedly have the tablet form factor. "It's been three years now since Microsoft released the 10" Surface 3, and it will be interesting to see if Microsoft can make small Windows tablets interesting again. Anyway, the FCC clearance suggests that this new tablet could be just around the corner.

Still, you could do a lot worse than the Intel Pentium processors expected to power what WinFuture's Roland Quandt calls the "Surface Lite".

Microsoft hasn't confirmed anything yet, but reports suggest that there will be an LTE model of this cheaper Surface. Specifically, the device is said to sport a 10-inch screen, USB-C connectivity, and a $400 price tag.
