First, it was all about Microsoft’s Windows 8 finally getting released. And then came along Apple’s announcement to expect ‘little’ things, which the tech world is expecting to be the iPad Mini. The week of October 23rd doesn’t seem to get any bigger, with two of the largest tech companies having important product launches, and for us the audience, well, we can’t wait for next week to begin! Oh, and there’s more than just Windows 8 and iPad Mini for the geeks to look forward to:
October 23rd: Look out for some big gaming action to get started. We’ve got three amazing games debuting on this day – Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Forza Horizon, and Persona 4: The Golden. Later in the day, Apple will finally give us more insight into its big announcement about the ‘little’ things – it could be an iPad Mini, a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, a new Mac Mini desktop, or a slimmer iMac. With Apple, you never quite know until the cat’s out of the bag!
October 24th: This day will see the start of the PhotoPlus International Expo in New York, where we could see some new cameras being announced. On the very same day, we’ve got Samsung officially lifting the lid on the various carrier versions of the Galaxy Note II, again in New York.
October 25th: A five hour event where Microsoft will officially bring out the Windows 8 – this one’s going to be huge, and not just in terms of the amount of time the program will last. By the next day, we could see Windows 8 products going on sale, so if you’re dying to pick one up, mark this day on your calendars!
October 29th: After the weekend, if you’re still not hungover on all the tech excitement, there’s more news to cheer. We’re expecting Andy Rubin, Google Android chief, to announce new Google Nexus devices at the “D” conference, also in New York. We’re hoping to see at least 1 new smartphone and a new Nexus tablet. This day gets even more exciting with the Windows 8 phone debut by Microsoft in San Francisco. Following this event, we’re hoping to finally see the HTC and Nokia phones running Windows 8 hit the markets!
