The next launch in the Microsoft arsenal of products is for the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. It is a quick 12 months after the launch of the first generation series showing that Microsoft is in to play in the tablet games. The Surface 2 is a powerful laptop in a tablet package, while the Surface Pro 2 has faster performance and significantly longer battery life. Both devices also feature a new lineup of Surface accessories.
From Boston to San Francisco, there will be 10 midnight Surface 2 launch events at 10 Microsoft retail stores across the nation starting on Oct. 21, 2013. At the event, attendees will be among the first to check out both Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 along with the latest accessories before they’re available to the public on Oct. 22. Plus, there will be fun “Surface Challenges’, offering attendees a chance to go head-to-head in a series of fun, interactive and sometimes physical games for a chance to be whisked away to Orlando, Florida the next morning for the Mall at Millenia store opening, where Pitbull will perform.
