Microsoft has invited reporters to a Surface tablet event on May 20, referring to it as a “small gathering” — a play on words that seems to indicate a line of small-screen Microsoft-branded tablets will be unveiled.

The current crop of Surface tablets sport 10.6-inch touchscreens with wide, 16:9 aspect ratios; Microsoft is on its second-generation the devices. The Verge reports that a smaller version might sport a 7.5-inch screen with a more square 4:3 aspect ratio, but the latest round of such rumors last bubbled up back in September, so plans could have changed between then and now. We’ll know the full story in a couple weeks.
