The company sent out invitations to a press event in New York City on Monday, September 23rd, reports Gizmodo.
The upgrades to the Surface RT (expected to just be called Surface) and Surface Pro are largely a mystery. Well, specs for the Pro have leaked out, but they're mostly what you'd expect from this generation of ultrabook-level device. What's more interesting will be what happens with the overall thesis of the Surface—will there be significant changes to the keyboard cover and kickstand that address complaints many had, or will Microsoft double down on its design and lean on the advantages of a year's worth of guts improvement will offer?
The Surface announcement will likely precede the announcement of new iPads. Apple is currently predicted to unveil its next generation tablets in October.
