MIcrosoft has sent out invitations to the media for a “major Microsoft announcement — you will not want to miss it” at 3:30 p.m. Monday in Los Angeles.
It’s a mystery what the event will entail and Microsoft folks aren’t talking.
Ina Fried of AllThingsD says, citing sources outside the company, that the event will show devices — likely tablets — running Windows RT, the version of Windows 8 designed for ARM-based devices.
Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet has several ideas: the Xbox Music unveiling? Microsoft advertising related?
In any case, next week will be full of Microsoft news between that event and a Windows Phone Summit happening Wednesday in San Francisco, where it’s expected that the company will talk about the next version of its Windows Phone, Windows Phone 8.
