Microsoft looks set to unveil Surface Pro 3 very soon

Text on Microsoft's support page hints that an updated Surface Pro that might debut as early as next week

We've already heard that Microsoft is preparing to launch a smaller Surface Mini tablet at its event next week – and now there's a tantalising hint that it'll be accompanied by a third-generation Surface Pro too.

Tech site Neowin managed to capture some text (shown below) from a Microsoft support page that specifically mentioned “Surface Pro 3” as part of the Windows 8.1 update. The text, which read, "adds support to the Surface Pro 3 camera", fueled speculation behind its release – but has since been removed from the page.

Is it a mistake?

A Microsoft spokesperson told WinBeta that the text depicted on its support page was in fact a typo and not confirmation that a Surface Pro 3 was on the radar: "An earlier version of the KB [Knowledge Base] article included a typo ... To avoid any confusion, we’ve updated the KB article to correct the typo and better convey the information as intended."

Genuine mistake or cover-up of an early product launch leak? We'll know on 20th May, when Microsoft will webcast a Surface event. Stay tuned for more developments.
