Microsoft has started sending out invites to press, inviting them to attend a Windows 10 hardware event to be held in New York City next month. The relatively plain looking invite inform that Microsoft has “some exciting news to share about Windows 10 devices”, and although it doesn’t explicitly state that a new batch of hardware will be announced, a number of insider sources and recent speculation has suggested the event will see a new batch of devices unveiled.

Three former Google employees have just released a tablet which borrows design elements from Microsoft’s Surface line of tablets and that’s not where the similarities end. We take a closer look at the tablet, right after the jump.

You know what they say about the best laid plans, right? Microsoft’s PR wing will be licking its wounds after what appeared to be quite a handy piece of product placement went a tad awry.

We’re pretty sure at this point that we won’t be seeing Jay Cutler – the Chicago Bears’ quarterback – anytime soon in a Microsoft TV ad. The highest paid player in NFL right now, commenting on the Microsoft Surface Pro 2, chose the words “knockoff iPads” to describe his impressions of the device. So much for Microsoft touting the tablet as one the most productive and professional tablet in the world.

The past week has been relatively busy for Microsoft, with the grand unveiling of the all-new Windows 10 operating system, but while the upcoming OS will no doubt consume much of the company’s time and resources over the next six or so months, it’s not the only exciting product currently in the works from the software maker. In fact, Microsoft Research has been developing a much more compelling and innovative creation, which takes Smart Cover technology to a whole new dimension in terms of capabilities, and although the tablet industry is considerably fast-moving one as is, we’re still particularly enthused about where this effort may eventually lead.

Microsoft might have spent most of this year’s BUILD developers conference discussing future software endeavors, but the company also took the opportunity to take the wraps off the Surface Pro 3. Despite its pedigree, it’s fair to say that against the likes of the Apple iPad, the Surface line-up in general has its work cut out, but here, we pit the latest and greatest Microsoft slate up against the Surface Pro 2, in an attempt to assess how far the software giant has come along.

Fans of Microsoft’s Surface tablet have been waiting patiently for additional news about the new Surface Power Cover. The interesting new accessory was originally teased back at the end of the third quarter last year, but there’s been relatively little buzz about the product in the time that has followed. The original speculation suggested that Microsoft had every intention of releasing the powerful new cover alongside the second-generation Surface hardware, but for a number of reasons that plan didn’t come to fruition. Still, all good things come to those who wait, and we can now welcome in some additional details about the cover, including a release date and price.

The Microsoft Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 have seen the light of the day, and as any other company would do, the Redmond technology giant is all about marketing and promoting the new hardware, to make sure that they become a true success. We’ve seen a lot of marketing ploys in the past as well – and not just from Microsoft, either – including Google’s Android statues and Apple’s TV ads. However, never once have we seen anything like what Microsoft has done in London’s Trafalgar Square, where the company has placed a 27 feet wide and 17 feet tall mockup of the newly-released Surface 2, all in the name of good marketing.

We already know that Microsoft is committed to prove themselves as a hardware company. The introduction of the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 in New York last month pretty much confirmed that the Redmond based company aren’t planning on licking their original Surface wounds and shying away from a competitive market. October 22nd is the date that was given during that dedicated event, and as the launch date gets ever closer, we are now seeing some Surface 2 promotional videos that show consumers exactly what they’ll be getting if they part with their hard earned dollars.
