Microsoft October Hardware Event: Surface AIO, Surface Pro 5, Surface Book 2 Ergonomic Surface Keyboard to Launch?


#SurfaceAIO #SurfacePro5Microsoft October Hardware Event: Surface AIO, Surface Pro 5, Surface Book 2 Ergonomic Surface Keyboard to Launch? : Microsoft hasn’t confirmed about the future of its Surface devices, but rumors are suggesting that the tech giant will be unveiling several products under the lineup this month.

Tech aficionados might look forward to the launch of the new Surface Pro 5, but the company is more likely to introduce other Surface brands such as an All-in-One (AIO) desktop and a refreshed Surface Book.

Windows Central reported of a filing for a keyboard accessory assumed to be made for Surface devices. Known as the “Ergonomic Surface Keyboard,” the accessory appears to have the signature magnesium color scheme of the Surface lineup.

There wasn’t an indication that this keyboard is intended for a specific device but it is expected that it will be sold with the Microsoft Surface Desktop at a hardware event this month. Aside from this ergonomic keyboard, another Surface keyboard and mouse are rumored to be introduced as well. The Verge reported that Microsoft is eyeing a late October event to be held in New York City.

Meanwhile, other Surface brands like Surface Pro 5 and Surface Book 2 will more likely be introduced in 2017, which means that fans might miss them at the rumored October event. There are reasons why the two Surface devices are slated to release next year.

For one, it is rumored that they will run on a Windows 10 Redstone 2 update, which won’t likely be available until 2017. Another is that the laptops are also expected to have an Intel Kaby Lake chipset, the full distribution of which won’t begin until 2017.

At this point, it’s hard to tell if Microsoft will really introduce the Surface Desktop at the said October event. The Redmond-based giant has been consistently silent regarding the existence of not only the desktop, but also Surface Pro 5 and Surface Book 2.

With that said, fans can only hope that a confirmation of the event will be given soon. By then, people can look forward to what the company has to say about its products. Source: gamenguide
