October 2 Microsoft Event: Surface, Windows, Office, Mixed Reality and Gaming

Aug 29, 2019

Microsoft will host an event on October 2 and make some announcements. In such recent events, the company showcased new hardware as well as announced Windows updates. I’m not expecting this format to change even though Microsoft will mix things up.

The company sent out a “save the date” invite. With details being only date; 10.02.2019, venue; New York, NY and hashtag #MicrosoftEvent.

October 2

A mobile-first, cloud-first strategy
this is our focus for every device and every service that we launch at Microsoft.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO

Last year the company announced a refresh of the family of devices and new accessories. The Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Studio and Surface Headphones.

October 2, 2019, Microsoft Event

I’m expecting Microsoft to announce new devices. A refresh of the Surface Pro, Laptop, Book and Surface Go devices to meet the latest hardware specifications. Fully adopting USB C as many have called for and expanding to new markets.

You will expect Microsoft to brief the media on what’s happening with HoloLens and the world of mixed reality.

Windows and Office will as in the past also get time to share new product updates and cross-device features.

You can also read what other Microsoft watchers think will happen at the event. Read what Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet and the guys at Windows Central have shared.

Let’s know what you think. What are you looking forward to seeing or hearing?
