Surface Event Entrance

Tomorrow, Microsoft will unveil a wide range of new hardware from phones to tablets and even a new Band; you can check out our pre-event coverage here that will help to set expectations.

For those of you who want to watch the event, Microsoft will be live-streaming the keynote and you can find the stream and everything else you need to know, here. If you are not able to watch the broadcast, both Paul (@thurrott) and I (@bdsams) will be posting pictures and commentary on Twitter that will likely be a few minutes faster than the live-stream.

I know that not everyone will be able to make it to the event and for those who are curious what the venue looks like, I took a quick trip over to the keynote location.

As you can see from the images, they are still constructing the entrance to the building but one thing I will say is this event, even from just the outside, looks more lavish than what I have seen in the past. At least, comparing to the keynote of the Surface Pro 3, which only had a small Surface sign above the door, Microsoft is making a grand entrance for the show.

Naturally, you cant’ see much from the outside but there are lots of trucks delivering crates likely are filled with fun toys that will be announced tomorrow. There are also security guards all around the building who tossed a few mean-mugs my way when I was snapping photos.

At the event, Microsoft will be setting the stage for its holiday offerings as all of the devices should be on store shelves before the crucial retail shopping season. The company is hoping that these new products will also drive significant foot traffic to its retail outlets and of course, drive more interest in Windows 10 too.

Tomorrow should be an exciting day for fans of Microsoft as the company has a lot of new hardware to show-off that will replace its aging fleet of devices. As always, Paul and I will make sure to keep you informed of all the announcements with the clarity and quality you have come to expect.

If you have any question that you want us to poke Microsoft about after the event, let us know in the comments below.
