It appears that September is the new February, since it’s filled with tech events. First we had IFA 2013, then Apple’s event tomorrow and the Nokia event at the end of the month. Now there’s one more to add to the calendar: a Microsoft event meant to debut the new Surface slate.

The Redmond giant has started emailing press invites to the media today, asking them to be present at the unveiling of the new Surface. We’ve seen a bunch of leaks of the product recently, in name and specs alone, without pics. We already know that there’s a trio coming, with a Surface 2 with RT on board, a Surface Pro 2 and also a Mini version.


However, the folks of The Verge have it on good authority that there’s no Mini coming on September 23rd. The Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 are expected to incorporate a two stage kickstand. The Pro version will jump to an Intel Haswell processor and the maker of the device intends to ship it with as much as 8 GB of RAM on board.

Surface 2, the RT unit will bring the Windows RT 8.1 OS, dropping the RT name this time. This product is expected to include a Full HD screen, a Tegra 4 CPU and a battery good enough for 8 hours of use.
