Microsoft broke new ground in 2012 with the introduction of its touchscreen Surface tablet / laptop hybrid and has not stopped ever since. This year, the company appears to be pulling out all the stops: some of its key innovations will be showcased at its New York City Starrett Lehigh building.
Why turn it on? Because you can probably expect to see new products and interesting device updates for the Surface line. This can be a Surface laptop powered by Qualcomm's new ARM chip and a dual-screen laptop. There are also rumors of a new speaker and a consumer version of teams, Microsoft's answer to Slack.
