Not only Apple is hosting events this month, Mircrosoft is holding ann event in New York to show the world the generation of Surface tablets and the new features the company have to offer top the world since they are tryting to keep up with the Iphone maker now.
Microsoft will be launching its next-generation Surface devices and peripherals on September 23 in New York City, according to an invitations Microsoft is sending out to press today.
At an invitation-only event, Microsoft is expected to show off the Haswell-based Surface 2 Proand the Tegra-based Surface 2 — products about which there’ve been a number of leaks in the past week-plus.
Microsoft’s invitation doesn’t specify whether the company also will show off a rumored 7- to 8-inch Surface device. But I’m hearing from my sources this mini Surface won’t be part of the September 23 unveiling.
Nokia had been rumored to be targeting September 26 for a New York City launch event. Company watchers believed Nokia planned to launch its “Sirius” ARM-based tablet and/or its “Bandit” Lumia phablet at that event. So far, however, no invitations have gone out for such an event.
Microsoft isn’t expected to start selling its Surface 2 or Surface 2 Pro devices this month. It’s expected to wait until around the time Windows 8.1 launches and becomes generally available, which is October 18.
