Microsoft will hold a press conference on Monday to make a major product announcement, and the company did its best to ensure the topic of the evening’s presentation was kept under wraps. In fact, Microsoft hasn’t even shared the location of the event yet with publications that will be in attendance. A pair of early reports last week suggested that a Microsoft-branded Windows 8 tablet will be the focus of Monday’s festivities, which are set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Eastern. A later report indicated we may instead see the first tablet-eReader combo emerge from Microsoft’s Barnes & Noble partnership, but the Dow Jones says that Barnes & Noble played no role in the announcements set to be made on Monday. Regardless of what Microsoft has in store, BGR will be on hand to cover the Redmond-based company’s event live.
