Getty B 102010 Microsoft Microsofts June 18 major announcement

On June 18th at 3:30 PM (Pacific Time), Microsoft will do something that will make some raise an eyebrow (or two if you can), especially the folks at Apple.  Microsoft recently sent out a notification to various publishers to let them know that Microsoft is going to make “a major” announcement in Los Angeles.  Aside from the secretive nature of this announcement, Microsoft is extending invitations to only certain publishers.

On June 18th at 3:30 PM (Pacific Time), Microsoft will do something that will make some raise an eyebrow (or two if you can), especially the folks at Apple.  Microsoft recently sent out a notification to various publishers to let them know that Microsoft is going to make “a major” announcement.  Aside from the secretive nature of this announcement, Microsoft is extending invitations to only certain publishers.

This will be a major Microsoft announcement — you will not want to miss it.

This is a non-transferrable invitation, however, if you would like to send your local colleague in your place, please submit that name and it will be reviewed. If you would like to bring a photographer please register that person as your additional guest. Please note – still photography and video will be limited.

This is an outrageous guess, but perhaps Microsoft will make Windows RT free to OEMs?  VR-Zone recently published an article sharing with viewers that Microsoft is planning to charge $85 for that version of Windows.  As many may agree that, that may be a bad business decision by Microsoft as iOS and Android are dominating the tablet market. 

Or perhaps Microsoft will announce that they intend to purchase Nokia’s Mobile division to extend their smartphone business.  Nokia is struggling and rumors has it that Microsoft may be the favorite to step in. 

To be honest, any guess is a great guess, but chances are the “major” announcement will have something to do with hardware.
