Microsoft Releases Invitations For Its October 6 Home windows 10 Hardware Occasion
As anticipated, Microsoft will host a hardware-targeted occasion on October 6. The corporate launched invitations this morning.
The shindig might embrace information in regards to the HoloLens ‘nerd helmet,’ the lengthy-anticipated Floor Professional four, the Microsoft Band 2, and, in fact, new Lumia smartphone handsets1. Right here’s an extract from the invite because it got here at present:
The occasion ought to give Microsoft a shot to show its imaginative and prescient for a way Home windows 10 and new generations of hardware will work collectively. A key Microsoft pitch regarding its new working system is that it features throughout display sizes, utilizing a single code base to work on each consumer gadget. That in thoughts, how Microsoft presents new hardware will underline the way it thinks that different OEMs ought to function in a publish-Home windows eight.1 world.
(That some OEMs are now mimicking the Floor type issue is notable, in fact. It might point out that Microsoft’s effort to steer its companions ahead in hardware design is working.)
Expectations are — based mostly on the already-lively rumor mill in regards to the occasion — considerably excessive. If Microsoft merely debuts the Floor Professional four, I feel it will be a disappointment; that time is doubly true when you think about how lengthy it has been since a brand new flagship Lumia handset was launched; and that latter level is squared when set subsequent to the truth that Home windows 10 for smartphones isn’t out but.
TechCrunch might be on the occasion.
1 Present group consensus is that the Floor Professional four will look just like the Floor Professional three, however will probably be probably quicker, lighter, and thinner. Anticipate a spate of Scorching Takes evaluating it to the newly introduced iPad Professional when it’s introduced.
