Microsoft Announces Hardware Event for October 2nd

Joining its biggest rivals, Microsoft sent out press invites for a product event happening in New York City next month.

Sadly, the teaser does not give any information about the specs of the devices which will be announced at the event, and we do not even know which devices from the Microsoft Surface line-up will be announced. In between the two, Microsoft just started sending out invites for a special Surface event in NYC on October 2, at 4PM.

The littlest Surface Go released a few months ago is unlikely to get an update, though. This is also true of the rumored Andromeda (if it ever comes), a new Surface Book, and probably a new Surface Studio.

Packers’ Aaron Rodgers injured, leaves games on cart
But still, on one leg, he was still Aaron Rodgers and he put together a few magnificent drives to get Green Bay back in the game. On a third-down play, Rodgers dropped back to throw but quickly hit the deck with the Bears' pass rushers closing in.

Other possible reveals at the October 2 event include new Surface-branded headphones, something described as its new "Modern Life Services" vision, more on the next version of Windows 10 and possibly some new cloud services.

Rumor has it that Microsoft does have a new, redesigned Surface Pro in the pipeline, but we're going to have to wait until next year to see that. Microsoft claims that this update improves device security. The Surface line proves that Microsoft has the skills to build decent hardware, but whether it can bring those skills to a phone or would risk doing so remains to be seen.

We'll find out more about what's coming on October 2.
