Microsoft is announcing something big on May 2


Earlier this week we've seen a report that Microsoft to hold a Spring hardware event for focus on the Windows Cloud.

While there are no other details included in the invite they do use one hashtag on the graphic - #MicrosoftEDU.

The plans are in line with earlier reporting on CNET's sister site, ZDNet, which said last month that the company's Surface Book 2 tablet won't be announced at the United States spring unveiling, as Microsoft has done in the past.

It's reasonable to think Microsoft could be revealing the next model in the non-Pro Surface line, which hasn't been updated since the Surface 3 was announced over two years ago.

Reports about a Windows 10 Cloud variant first appeared in January, with early copies showing that it will be another simplified version of Windows created to run Microsoft's Universal apps from the Windows Store.


Although its name suggests that the new operating system will be streamed from Microsoft's cloud servers, Windows Cloud will just be a simpler version of Windows 10. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

Joe Belfiore might be lead this spring event, and he is likely also the main behind Windows Cloud. Microsoft is able to do this by only allowing it to run Unified Windows Platform (UWP) apps which can only be downloaded from the Windows Store, according to BGR.

Besides, now that Microsoft has effectively established itself as a player in the high-end hardware space, it's about time the company focused more on lower price brackets. In fact, Windows Cloud can be explained better as a continuation of Windows RT.

About hardware, it's possible that the tech world could witness the release of a new Surface-branded laptop which does not offer a detachable screen.
