Rumours are swirling that indicate Microsoft is working on a new AIO Surface PC.
Microsoft working on its Surface PC were speculated back in July, but now there are credible sources confirming the Windows 10 machine launch in late October at an event in New York City.
Dubbed as “Cardinal”, the device will come in three different screen sizes – 21, 24 or 27. According to Mary Jo Foley, of ZDNet, the AIC Surface PC may be the consumer-focused version of Microsoft’s Surface Hub using the Perceptive Pixel screen technology.
The launch of the new device has also been given the codename Project Rio.
The upcoming event may also see Microsoft announcing OEM devices and minor updates to existing Surface tablets, with newer processors.
However, the Surface Pro 5 and the Surface Book 2 is speculated to be launched only sometime next year.
The Surface line started in mid-2012 with the RT version. In 2014 and 2015, Microsoft released the Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3, which quickly became a sensation worldwide. With strong competition, Microsoft is catching up to its peers. And new technology undoubtedly will be one the biggest drivers.
