Microsoft Surface AIO Expected to Be Launched at October 26 Windows 10 Event

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Microsoft’s October 26 event will focus on Windows 10
  • The event will be live streamed
  • All new Surface branded AIO expected at October 26 event

Microsoft has announced an event on October 26 in New York City where the company says it will reveal “what’s next for Windows 10.” This is being thought to be the new Surface desktop that was tipped earlier. The event will kick off on October 26 at 10am EDT (or 7:30pm IST) and will be live streamed.

Ahead of the fall event, Microsoft has indicated that it will be all about the next chapter in the Windows 10. As we mentioned, apart from software-related announcements and incremental updates to certain features in Windows 10, Microsoft is expected to showcase an all-in-one (AIO) PC under its Surface brand. The Surface all-in-one device was rumoured in July.

The upcoming AIO under Surface branding is codenamed “Cardinal”, as per the earlier report. It is expected to be showcased in three screen sizes – 21-inches, 24-inches, and 27-inches. Rumours claim that the Redmond giant may unveil all three at the event or at least one will be showcased. Unfortunately, the specifications of the alleged AIO PC have been successfully kept under wraps and speculations will likely begin as we approach closer to the event.

Microsoft is said to be launching the Surface AIO PC as a consolation of sorts as the unveiling of the second-generation Surface Book was reportedly shifted from the second half of 2016 to first half 2017 due to delay in CPU shipments by Intel. Previous reports have already suggested that Microsoft is working on a Surface Phone which is said to debut in early 2017.

ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley also speculates that Microsoft may highlight a bunch of OEM partners at the October 26 event.
