Microsoft’s Hosting Another Surface Event, This Time in China

Posted on May 4, 2017 by Brad Sams in Hardware with 46 Comments

If you said you thought that Microsoft needed to host another event this month besides the education event and Build next week, you are in luck. Microsoft has announced a hardware event for May 23rd and this one is taking place in China.

Ok, so what’s the deal here? I don’t know all the details but I can tell you that I had been hearing about this for some time. For those of you who watch my podcast on Friday’s, I said on April 14th, that there might be another Surface event this month and here it is.

What’s on the agenda? Well, we know it is Surface related as Panos is attending the event and I have heard that the company may refresh their Surface hardware. But, I will say that doing this in China is a bit odd and outside the normal venue that Microsoft hosts these types of events at but here we are with Panos heading to China for the event.

Microsoft’s invite has the phrase “will show the world what’s next” which means that they clearly have something new to show everyone.

As for attending, I don’t believe Paul and I will be going to this one, at least as of right now, we are not planning to attend. Also, we have enough travel as it is on our plate and traveling half-way around the world to see a Surface Pro refresh isn’t exactly appealing.

That being said, Microsoft is hosting an event later this month which brings with it quite a bit of excitement. As always, Paul and I will keep you updated on what we hear.
