Microsoft sends invites for October 2 Surface event

Microsoft sends invites for October 2 Surface event
It might be just a simple coincidence or superstition, but Microsoft has just confirmed that new Surface devices will be revealed on October 2, the same day that the current generation of Surface devices have been unveiled last year.

Mary Jo Foley from ZDNet reports that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will be present at the upcoming event, although he wasn't at the fall event in 2018. She also believes that we might see several new Surface devices, including a new Intel-based Surface Pro 2-in-1 with an improved processor and USB-C, an AMD Surface Laptop, and a new ARM-based Surface 2-in-1 device.

Rumor has it that Microsoft might also introduce a new Surface-branded portable speaker, which will be business-oriented and built around Microsoft's Team group-chat service.

The invitation talks about both devices and “experiences,” so there's a slight chance that Microsoft might talk about “Windows Lite” OS, the company's ChromeOS competitor. Although various sources claim that “Centaurus,” the dual-screen PC that Microsoft builds to run Lite OS, will be launched in 2020, we might get a glimpse at the software that powers the device early next month.
