Microsoft surprised the tech industry when, in 2012,. Until then, Microsoft had primarily been a software company, with the exception of its Xbox video game console and some phones. Now, seven years later, the Microsoft Surface Pro is still for its tablet-like slim form, keyboard cover and digital stylus pen.
This year, the company’s expected to announce new updates to its Surface laptops, but it may have other surprises up its sleeve. The company is ready to reignite its efforts to sell low-power laptops and tablets, according toand the French blog Frandroid. Microsoft has also been rumored to be preparing , not unlike its popular from nearly a decade ago.
Either way, it appears Microsoft has a bit more planned than the typical speed and battery life upgrades we see out of most laptops these days.
Microsoft’s event will start in New York at 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT / 3 p.m. UK.
The event will be livestreamed on Microsoft’s website.
What we can expect
