Microsoft schedules event on September 30, likely Windows 9 unveiling


Microsoft has sent out invitations for an event which will take place in San Francisco on September 30th. The invite reads "Join us to hear what's next for Windows and the enterprise." During the event, Microsoft is expected to unveil the next major version of Windows, and release a "Technical Preview" to those who want to test it.

The event will be led by Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Operating Systems Group at Microsoft, Joe Belfiore, and Executive Vice President of Operating Systems, Terry Myerson.

The next version of Windows is expected to unify Microsoft's mobile and desktop platforms. As part of this change, Windows Phone may be known simply as Windows moving forward. Currently known as Windows 9, the platform will give users back the control of their desktops with several enhancements to unify the Modern UI and the desktop.

We don't know much about what Microsoft has planned for Windows 9, but we have gotten a glimpse of its progress in the form of leaked screenshots and videos.

We will be covering the event as it happens, so mark the date on your calendars and check back for updates.
