September 23rd Rolls Nearer as Microsoft Readies the Surface 2 Tablets

Microsoft has started sending out invitations to media members for a Sept. 23 event in New York City, where it’s expected to unveil second-generation versions of its Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets. Microsoft launched Surface last June at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, but it kept the venue secret until the last minute. This time around Microsoft has chosen Skylight Modern, a studio that’s “reminiscent of a museum with simple but impactful architecture that enables the event design to become art,” according to a description on its website. At this point, indications are that the new tablets will be called Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, though Microsoft has not confirmed this. According to published reports, Microsoft won’t be unveiling a Surface mini tablet, as has been widely speculated in recent weeks. Read the complete Press Release here.
