Dell joins Microsoft's Mixed Reality gang with Visor headset
Microsoft officials plan to show off the company's end-to-end mixed reality offerings on Oct. 3 in San Francisco.
The invitation-only press and analyst event will be hosted by Microsoft Technical Fellow Alex Kipman and highlight how Microsoft sees and plans to address the mixed-reality space. (I'm hearing the event will not be webcast.)
In past years, Microsoft has held a single fall Windows and Devices Group event -- where the company typically unveils new Surface-branded devices. Instead, Microsoft seems to be planning a much lower-key new Surface reveal at the very end of October at its Future Decoded event in London. My contacts are saying that the promised Microsoft Surface Pro with built-in LTE is likely all that will be announced at the London event.
Microsoft also is on tap to start selling its Xbox One X gaming console, codenamed Project Scorpio, on Nov. 7.
I've been hearing from my contacts lately that Microsoft might not start shipping new Surface Books until early 2018. And the company's second-generation Surface Hub also is sounding (from sources) like an early 2018 thing.
