This year's Google I/O wasn't as dramatic as the I/Os of yesteryear. Nobody jumped from a blimp with a radical new face computer strapped to his face, and Larry Page neglected to step foot on stage, much less wax poetic about the infinite sadness in the world.

The Surface Pro 3 is real, and Microsoft's "tablet that can replace your laptop" looks mighty impressive on paper, from its pixel-packed 12-inch screen to its almost impossibly slim 0.35-inch chassis, which hides up to a full-blown Core i7 processor. And that's only on the, er, surface: the thoughtful design tweaks Microsoft integrated into the tablet, from the deep OneNote pen integration to the improved Type Cover trackpad and more flexible kickstand, seem sure to make Microsoft's new slate far more comfortable to actually use than its smaller predecessors, as well.
Microsoft stands poised to unveil the next chapter in the ambitious, yet tumultuous Surface saga on Tuesday, with a quote-unquote "small" Surface event in New York City. The date's concrete, but the details are murky. Just what is Microsoft going to unveil? The Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 were only launched in late October, after all.
If Microsoft indeed intends to release a shrunk-down Surface Mini this month, as an invite for a "small" Surface event suggests, merely downsizing the tablet's design to fit an 8-inch frame ain't going to cut it. Sure, the Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2 are beautiful pieces of kit, but they're made for big-screen productivity--the Surface Pro is essentially an Ultrabook without a keyboard. That experience won't translate well to a smaller form factor, better suited for content consumption than content creation.
