If your fall tech event calendar was already a little full with Apple Inc. and Google shindigs, you might have to make room for one more -- from Microsoft Corp.
On October 2 in New York, Microsoft will unveil new hardware and software for the company’s Surface devices aimed at helping people with work and home tasks.
There won’t be a Surface phone or a whole new category of device, but rather updated models in existing lines, which currently include tablets and laptops, according to a person familiar with the company’s plans.
For several years Microsoft has held a pre-holiday event to show off new products, even if it’s already unveiled other new Surface devices earlier in the year. July brought a new category from Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft -- the $399 Surface Go tablet, which is intended to complete with cheaper Apple iPads.
