Microsoft CEO Nadella expected to preside over New York City Surface Mini rollout

Microsoft just sent a number of us media folks invitations to "a small gathering" on May 20 in New York City.

The invitation, emailed on May 5, says it is for a "Surface event" and will kick off at 11 a.m. ET.

CEO Satya Nadella will be officiating, according to my sources.

Given the timing, my guess is this is likely to be the introduction of Microsoft's long-rumored Surface Mini tablet. Previous leaks have indicated the Surface Mini will be a 7- to 8-inch tablet that will come equipped with a stylus.

A recent leak by a case maker on indicated that the Surface Mini might be available (or at least announced) by May 18.

The story is too old to be commented.
