Microsoft has just started sending out invites to a launch event for a Surface product, expected to be the second iteration of its Surface tablets for 23 September in New York City.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The Redmond-based company is expected to unveil its Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets at the event, despite the first generation not faring so well with consumers. Indeed, just a few months ago, Microsoft had to take a $900 million write-down due to Surface RT inventory issues.

However, with the company having acquired Nokia’s mobile business, this could provide another potential route for its tablet ambitions.
