    What do you guys think it'll be? A new flagship? Low end phone? Updated band? Slimmer Xbox? I'm pretty excited if this is true.

    I'm very hopeful for any of the above but I figure it might just be PCs and Tablets from various manufacturers.

    Oooohhh I wasn't thinking of this, but it would actually make sense. Show off a flagship device for their new mobile SKU.

    If it's a flagship phone they did hid it very good.
    X box could because they lowered the price (maybe to get the stock out)
    For the band they should make it available world wide (but not sure if that is windows 10 related)

    Not a reliable source, MJF is much more reliable and hasn't mentioned anything about new hardware. However I'm surprised very few people seem to have caught Daniel's mention in this very forum of a new flagship this summer..... http://forums.windowscentral.com/gen...tm#post2939603

    I'm hoping for that QWERTY slider I saw earlier.

    Microsoft to showcase a 'phone-laptop hybrid' at its Windows 10 event tomorrow

    I hate to say this but I think its a ridiculous idea, I mean why can't they just make the WP's a full PC that's what we all wanted after all.

    Battery life is still an issue with x86-based tablets so I can imagine what it would be like with an LTE radio running as well.

    A phone similar to the Motorola Atrix would be great to show off the "One OS" idea (if they keep the desktop in the Windows 10 mobile SKU)

    I think we can count on seeing a Windows Phone using the Intel Cherry Trail SoC later this year. That my friend will be a full PC phone.

    I don't believe that we will see a new Xbox. I just think we would have heard about it by now, and it seems early for a die/body shrink.

    I think we will absolutely see new laptop/tablet/hybrid hardware. It's about 6 months early for a Surface Pro 4, but maybe the long-awaited Mini shows up? We will almost certainly see some OEM partners show stuff off, I would think.

    On the mobile side, the 435 and 1330 are the likeliest culprits for reveal. I'd almost hope AGAINST a flagship, as we've heard nothing from the FCC, and I'd be worried about the crapfest of announcing it in January and releasing it 2 months later (or more). In a perfect world, the 1030 would show up, but I've just become really pessimistic towards Microsoft's hardware decisions since they took over for Nokia and pooped out budget devices seemingly monthly, while canceling the one flagship they planned.

    I don't believe that hybrid laptop/phone device will happen, either. It just logistically seems awkward, and would basically mean we would get an Intel-based phone that I can't see as likely. The hardware simply looks like a vertical slider, a la the Venue, and maybe that form factor could happen. Like I said, I just have learned to keep my expectations low after a year of disappointment.

    Lol alright, but considering waiting like 10 days or so is exactly what Microsoft did with 8.1, I don't see why this would be any different. I've seen a lot of official news sources claiming its not coming tomorrow and bunch fan-made speculation that it is, so....

    I'm guessing a medium range phone (1330?) will be the only phone they launch tomorrow. As far as other hardware? Maybe a better power cover for the SP3? (Long shot, I know)
