    Surface Pro 2 will be announced in NYC on Sept 23


    I spoke to my representitive at the Microsoft Store and he told me that Surface Pro 2 will be announced on Monday Sept 23 in NYC (new york city, usa) on what is in it, etc and pricing.
    The stores will not get it until the official Upgrade date in Oct.

    I don't think the Surface Pro 2 will ship until January. The Surface 2 (the RT version) will likely ship in October.

    Why? You don't think a 50% increase in battery life from the Haswell chipset is a good enough reason?

    I think MS should only make a few of these devices at first to be used as bait then they would just increase production if the demand takes off. They don't wanna make the same mistake they did on the first generation of Surface RTs by having so many of them built , most of which are still left unsold.

    From what I have read, the surface pro 2 comes with the haswell and 8 gb memeory. I was waiting for this. The surface pro 1 only had 4 gm of memory. This makes sense because I don't think any of the hardware is upgradeable.

    The Surface Pro needs to update on a regular basis, it's a high end device and high end users always want the latest components and configurations, Haswell CPUs, better graphics and more RAM, to name a few.

    They should discount the older versions to deplete stock, this is an industry standard.
