Microsoft has put the past behind it and is nearly ready to introduce to the world its second generation Surface line later this month. The special unveiling is scheduled to take place on September 23, 2013 in New York City, according to invitations Microsoft has begun sending out to members of the press. At that time, the Redmond outfit will introduce its Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro products.
There aren't any big reveals in the invitations being sent out, so we're stuck with the existing rumors and speculation. As a refresher, it's believed that Surface 2 will feature Nvidia's Tegra 4 platform, while Surface 2 Pro will come with Intel's Haswell architecture inside, likely a Core i5 processor. Both are said to sport a refined, two-position kickstand.
Some have also speculated that Microsoft may launch a 7-inch or 8-inch version of Surface 2 to compete with the iPad mini, but again, nothing has yet been confirmed. Barring any solid leaks, we won't really know for about another two weeks.
