    Call me crazy but I have the feeling Microsoft will pop the top on a wearable Watch. I also have the feeling any watch that is introduced will be a Windows Only to start, and they will add support for ios/Android later down the line.

    This is not going to be a introduce and sell, this will be a brief overview, with I will guess a Q2 Launch 2015.

    Yes I know the event is for Windows 9 Tech Preview...but I have the feeling creeping in that they are waking up to the fact if they don't answer back to Apple's Event they will end up dead on arrival.

    Any one else think they may provide a shock or two at the Sept. 30th Event?????

    How about they surprise us with a half decent flagship phone? That would be nice.

    As for a wearable. IF they release one they better, 1) make it have a fantastic battery life, 2) make it compatible with all devices, 3) give more details about it than Apple gave about theirs 4) make it stylish

    If they fail at any of those it will flop.

    I really wish they'd surprise us with something, anything. I could care less about wearables, I'd like to see a new 5"ish high end phone come to AT&T.
    We'll see. I'm not expecting anything, so I hope I'll be surprised!

    Hopefully they'll surprise us. Microsoft really needs an earth shattering product... Something that'll make them the talk of the town

    Everyone forgot
    The event is about "Windows" only and as of now the "Phone" from "Windows Phone" ha not been dropped officially, so I am guessing this event will only focus on Windows.

    The Windows (Phone) 9 is announced at that date and it will release at sometime in January 2015 (for dev).

    I'm sure Microsoft will surprise us. The question is: will we be pleasantly or unpleasantly surprised?

    I hope beyond hope that they do. But realisitically I do not think that they will and certainly not for wearables. They have to work ahead in other areas IMO before they start thinking wearables.

    I think they will show all versions of Windows 9.... PC, Phone and tablet (rt) and hopefully, some REALLY tight integration across all 3. maybe a new flagship phone that will officially be the 1st phone going by windows instead of windows phone?

    Steam/Origin app with highDPI and Touch support?
    A smartwatch that support Cortana and 5 days battery?
    Streaming PC/Xbox gameplay to WP (like Wii U or PS vita) and Xbox Gamepad for WP?
    Blur transparent interactive live title?

    Ha ha ha... never happen... I'm just joking! :(

    Yes, Satya will tell us something like "The synergies of strategic alignment in the co-evolution of importance to the cloud centric vision is critical to the innovation of fundamental success in this multidimensional platform agnostic customer demand"
    Can't wait.

    I'd only be surprised if they DO surprise us. I've heard this song and dance before so I'm not expecting anything.

    Dreaming....for a "wearable device" but, it will be just that...A dream. Even a 3rd party one that FULLY works with Windows Phone is STILL a dream.

    On the 30th, Microsoft will announce Windows 9 (or what ever it will be called) and it will go through feature by feature to push it to 2-3 hours, then announce the public preview release (I hope it's on the 30th). If the Windows Phone name is said, it will be just about the Name changes....

    I would be SHOCKED if there was more given at that point, a watch ? Now your dreaming...

    Of course I voted NO, as I KNOW they wont show anything like this....but, I would LOVE to be proven wrong here :)

    They will surprise us by prolonging the suspense and moving the announcement to September 31st.

    I would like to see a reveal of a new Surface RT device, seeing as this is about the time it usually happens. Perhaps the mini will be made available and Microsoft will complement the reveal with information regarding upgrading all existing WP8 and RT devices to the new, unified OS.

    It'll be underwhelming for the most part.

    There's going to be some PowerPoints of screens for Windows 9, some video, and talk about how great the start menu and the hybrid tablet/desktop features are. Developers will learn when they can get their hands on the preview and how to sign up. Cortana for desktop won't be there.

    Waffles and coffee will be served at the back of the room.
