(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Microsoft’s Surface Tablet isn’t nearly popular as the iPad – but that might not stop the tech giant from going the downsize route. According to a report from, the company is open creating smaller tablet devices.

Microsoft Chief Financial Officer Peter Klein discussed the possibility via the Goldman Sachs conference. “We can have the same core code base driving form factors from four inches all the way up to 27-inch ones and everything in between,” Klein stated, according to a separate story from AllThingsD.

He went on to say, “So I think we are well set up to respond to demand as we see it. We can deliver a versatile set of experiences across form factors, whether they’re four-inch, five-inch, seven-inch, 10-inch or 13-inch.”

Microsoft just expanded its Surface line by releasing the Pro version last week.
