Microsoft has had their big tech event to announce a bunch of new devices. This includes new Surface devices and PC accessories to diversify the Surface portfolio.
Looking for a new device? Well Microsoft has heaps of ways for you to spend some serious coin on some serious hardware.
You can check out the whole showcase here:
With Windows 11 not far away it makes sense that Microsoft would update the Surface portfolio. This isn’t just limited to laptops, you can get new headsets, pens, and mics. The world is your oyster. A very expensive oyster.
Unfortunately the phone shown off doesn’t appear to be announced for NZ yet.
