Building on the success of its recent Windows 10 launch, Microsoft is turning its focus to hardware at an October 6 press event in New York City. Next generation versions of the Surface tablet, Lumia phones and the Band fitness tracker are widely expected.

    He's here to wrap up the announcements: HoloLens update, a new Band, new phones, Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.
  • Sarah Tew 10/6/2015 3:42:09 PM
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:42:23 PM
    "We're making great progress towards our aspiration to move people to needing Windows to choosing Windows to loving Windows," he says.
  • Sarah Tew 10/6/2015 3:42:35 PM
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:42:43 PM
    The Windows 10 ramp is by far the fastest we've ever had, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:42:57 PM
    More and more people are coming home to Windows, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:43:13 PM
    We begin a new chapter of Windows 10, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:43:25 PM
    We built Windows 10 for a new era of more personal computing, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:43:38 PM
    What matters is the mobility of the experience, not the mobility of the device, he says.
  • Sarah Tew 10/6/2015 3:43:45 PM
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 3:43:49 PM
    Lots of stuff here. In retrospect, seems like new Band is a minor update compared to everything else.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:43:52 PM
    No single device will be a hub of activity forever, he says. The hub is you.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:44:02 PM
    Your settings, data and apps need to be mobile with you.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 3:44:08 PM
    "The hub is you."
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:44:36 PM
    Windows 10 is a major step forward in our ambition to create a more personal computing future, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:44:47 PM
    The innovation today drives home the point of why we want to build our own devices, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:44:55 PM
    Microsoft is in the "experiences business," he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:45:24 PM
    When we envision the opportunity create a new category, we consider new forms and new functions simultaneously, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:45:43 PM
    He calls the HoloLens a new paradigm for computing.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:46:03 PM
    Our band is both a sensor platform and a cloud service, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:46:18 PM
    We're building the most productive phones on the planet, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:46:39 PM
    The Lumia 950 and 950 XL are phones you can run your entire business on, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:46:45 PM
    I know folks with iPhones who do the same thing already.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:48:15 PM
    Surface Book is a digital clipboard AND a powerful laptop, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:48:38 PM
    Our mission at Microsoft is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:48:52 PM
    We make things that help you make things and make things happen, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:49:48 PM
    And with that, Nadella wraps things up.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:49:53 PM
    The light dims (yet again). One more video!
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:50:07 PM
    The bass is pumped up once again, FYI.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:50:36 PM
    So we got a few things we expected -- Band, Surface Pro 3, Lumia 950 and 950 XL -- and one surprise in the Surface Book.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 3:51:05 PM
    Almost done! Surface Book lingers in my mind the most. HoloLens price for, that's high. New Microsoft Band...unclear how it's specifically better than old one, other than barometer and design/fit.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 3:51:56 PM
    HoloLens I still see as a tool for theme parks, theater/attractions, and some enterprise/business ideas
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:52:00 PM
    And with that, Frank Shaw is back out to wrap things up.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:52:09 PM
    Looks like the show is over.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:52:28 PM
    A demo room is opening up to our left with the products.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:52:55 PM
    Stay with CNET for all the details on the new Microsoft product.
  • John Falcone 10/6/2015 3:53:04 PM
    Pretty great day if you're a Microsoft / Windows fan.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:53:15 PM
    Our team -- Scott, Jessica, Dan and Bridget -- will be getting hands-on time with the devices and offering videos.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:53:33 PM
    Thanks again for tuning into our live blog. Hopefully, you got a lot out of it.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:53:44 PM
    And with that, I've got to check out these products!
