Rumors Suggest that Windows Blue Could Bring Smaller Windows Tablets in Picture

Things are heating up with the rumors floating around Windows Blue which is supposedly the next Windows update after Windows 8.

Latest one was spotted in a big article  from TheVerge which talks about  dropping the Windows Brandname spotted earlier by Neowin.The article suggests that Windows Blue would be optimized to run on a smaller form factor tablets which would add 7 and 8 inch Windows tablets in picture and that would eventually mean that the hardware partners are readying themselves for the same.

All the existing Windows 8 and Windows RT based devices are of 10 inch or above screen size and if this is true then we would see a wide range of Windows tablets (Surface 7″ anyone!)with smaller screens and cheaper alternatives to their bigger brothers and would give a tough competition to the likes of Nexus 7 and the new iPad Mini.
