Microsoft have scheduled a bumper event on 6 October when they’re expected to take the wraps of Microsoft 10 Mobile, new Lumia handsets and a new Surface Pro tablet. Also thought to be released is the Microsoft Band 2. Although it’s been long rumoured, there have been very few details to emerge so far. Now a picture and some specs have appeared thanks to a Spanish website.
As Garry discovered when he reviewed the first Microsoft Band, the software and usability was great, but the thing was very uncomfortable to wear. Microsoft seem to have taken this criticism on-board (to be fair, it wasn’t just our Garry who moaned about it!) and if the picture leaked above is anything to go by, the updated Band will have a rounder shape to it, particularly the display itself. Also new are the buttons under the display, and it’s thought to now pack GPS sensors, which were missing from the original. Full details, availability and price should be released in just a few weeks time.
