The company, which sent out press invitations Monday, is expected to present new versions of its Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, which some speculate will feature a two-stage kickstand. It is also expected to include Intel's Haswell processor, which will help increase battery life. The Surface 2 is expected to have a 1,080-pixel display and to look pretty much the same as its predecessor.

Microsoft is also rumored to be preparing to pull back the curtain on some accessories, including a docking station and a tablet cover (called the "Power Cover") that both charge the device and act as a keyboard, according to a report from tech blogger Paul Thurrott.
