"Please join us to see what's next for Windows 10," the invite says right below backwards, mirrored text that reads "Imagine what you'll do."

Last month, there were reports that Microsoft would add an all-in-one PC to its Surface lineup, filling a gap in the middle of a product range that spans from the svelte Surface Pro 4 tablet to the giant Surface Hub touch screen. At the time, ZDNet said the new device will be marketed as a consumer version of the business-friendly Hub. Apparently code-named "Cardinal," the new all-in-one could come in a range of screen sizes from 21 to 27 inches. That squares with the window-like image we see in the Microsoft invitation.

The Verge says we could also see some Xbox news and details on the next Windows 10 update at the event.

It comes during a time of transition for Microsoft. Redmond has largely failed to crack the mobile business; in May, it sold its feature phone business to a subsidiary of Foxconn and a newly formed Finnish firm for $350 million. "We are focusing our phone efforts where we have differentiation — with enterprises that value security, manageability and our Continuum capability, and consumers who value the same," CEO Satya Nadella said at the time. "We will continue to innovate across devices and on our cloud services across all mobile platforms."

More recently, it formed a new division focused entirely on artificial intelligence.

How will all that play out on Oct. 26? Check back to find out.
