#Microsoft #Surface – Surface update launch CONFIRMED as Microsoft schedules October 26th event : Microsoft has confirmed that it is set to reveal a host of new products, including an updated Surface PC, in the next few weeks.
The company has sent out invitations to a media event in New York on October 26th, where it is expected to take the wraps off several new products. With the tagline “Imagine what you’ll do” the event promises to be Microsoft’s biggest launch event of the year, and could event include some Xbox-related announcements.
Rumours surrounding the latest generation of Microsoft devices have been swirling around this week after pictures of Surface-branded keyboards and mouse were leaked online.
These devices were thought to be set to ship with the all-in-one desktop Surface PC – although some have speculated that it could instead be a range of peripherals designed to be used alongside the existing Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.
Microsoft revealed the original Surface Book laptop back in October 2015, meaning that the product is ripe for a refresh.
Sources have claimed that Microsoft is quietly experimenting with a swathe of traditional form factors that could be Surface-branded.
The Redmond technology firm is also reportedly working on an all-in-one desktop computer under the Surface branding, that will be released later this year. The desktop hardware would be a powerful alternative to the Surface Book, which was the first laptop computer designed and built entirely by Microsoft.
