Three more Microsoft Surface tablets may arrive in 2013

Although Microsoft is just getting started with its Surface tablets, a source says that the company may launch three new devices in 2013.

But the source isn't always spot on. MS Nerd's claims that AT&T would get two Samsung Windows Phones 8 devices, and that Sprint would get a QWERTY slider from Nokia, have both proven false, at least for now.

MS Nerd also accurately called many of the details on Nokia's Lumia 920, including the 720-pixel display and the Snapdragon S4 processor, but was wrong about the PureView camera, which has an 8.7-megapixel sensor, not 12 megapixels as claimed.

In other words, don't take MS Nerd's words as gospel. While the source is often gets things right, plans can change, and specific tech specs are always tough to call far in advance. The one thing that seems certain, in any case, is that Microsoft isn't nearly finished making its own Windows 8 hardware. Get ready for a lot more angst from PC makers.
