I personally don't think Microsoft will use Apple's naming method. And will go for something different entirely. What is your best suggestion for the name?

Mine is:

Surface Note

Surface Note

Play's on the Samsung Galaxy range

 

'Surface To Go' or 'Surface(insert screen size)' or possibly 'Surface Compact' might make good names

Hmm... I have a feeling Surface (insert screen size) would be it.

The Tiny Surface?

(Suggested because it seems Microsoft often comes up with ridiculous names for its products)

And I don't see why not. Familiarity is a good thing when a new product is introduced.

Nha, they aren't going to do that, to confusing for the future, when we get to the 8th generation.

I wouldn't have thought so, as by the 8th gen (lets say in theory 8 year's time) this one would be obsolete, although by then it would've probably been rebranded.
