Already the invitation cards have been sent to the Surface 2.0 Event which is to take place in New York City. September 23rd is the date set for the launch. Novel Surface hardware will probably get featured at the event.
However, Microsoft is taciturn about what will get shown and what will not get shown. But one thing is for sure. Microsoft would never hold an event and then disappoint its fans. Surface gadgets are on the menu alright. The Surface experiment was one of failure and tragic loss for Microsoft. But it is not about to give up that easily. Microsoft will be manufacturing its own PC hardware and various other devices.
Just recently, Microsoft bought off Nokia’s business. Among the rumors circulating about the Surface 2.0 event are the introduction of the next generation Surface and the Surface Pro. Even discounts have been given on these devices. The spanking new tablets that Microsoft will be showing off to the world at large will include a smaller-screened Surface. The Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 devices remain a mystery. They are revisions of the Surface RT and Surface Pro models.
The only things we know are that the Surface 2 has a Tegra 4 CPU, 10.6-inch screen with ClearType Full HD 1080p display, a kickstand and 4GB RAM. Battery longs for up to 8 hours and its weighs 1.5 pounds. It will be just 0.37 inches thick with front and rear-facing cameras. Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11, full-sized USB 3.0 port, micro-SD expansion up to 64 GB, HD video-out port, includes Office Home & Student 2013 RT are some other features of the device. The Pro 2 contains a Haswell Processor along with 8GB of RAM. As for the battery longevity, it goes on and on. The event will be attended by New Yorkers and other people from myriad places.
