Microsoft announces next launch event, Oct 26th

Published by at

In a similar event to the one which launched the Lumia 950 and 950 XL last year, plus various Surface products, Microsoft has scheduled another shindig in New York, probably to announce further the next generation of the Surface Pro, the Surface Book, plus a new all-in-one desktop Surface. Guess what's missing from the line-up this year? A Surface Phone - because the OS itself isn't ready yet, that'll have to wait for Redstone 2 in Spring 2017. Ah, it's the waiting that hurts....

From the announcement of the event:

Join us to see what’s next for Windows 10, save the date to watch the livestream of our #MicrosoftEvent in New York City on Wednesday October 26, 2016 at 10AM EDT/7AM PDT.

See you on October 26th then? [direct link to livestream]

Although I don't for one minute think that a Surface Phone of some kind will be announced, a tease in a slide or family photo would be nice, Microsoft. Just to show that your heart's still in it....
