Microsoft May 2 event – Here's what to expect

New Delhi: Microsoft is all set to hold a hardware and software event in New York City on Tuesday.

Microsoft has tweeted:

Tech journalists attending the event are expecting the company to unveil at least one piece of new hardware.

A Verge report said that Microsoft may possibly take this opportunity to reveal the hardware design of its upcoming Xbox Project Scorpio, just ahead of its E3 event in June, or a successor to the Surface 3 which was designed with students in mind," the report noted.

If rumours are to be believed, Microsoft may unveil its Windows 10 Cloud operating system -- an alternative to Chrome OS that runs Universal Windows Apps.

This speculation stems from the fact that the event is codenamed "Bespin" -- a fictional Star Wars planet that includes a "Cloud City".

This event will be focused on education, so we can expect to see any hardware or software be connected to how it can be used in schools.
