Microsoft is holding a press event on October 26th in New York City to unveil its new Surface-branded all-in-one PC. However, despite the rumors, up until now, we didn’t have any information of the official name the company will be using for the device.
Today, a new report from The Verge points out that Brian Conroy, a trademark attorney, has come across to what it could be the officially name for the new Surface, or specific software for the device.
Conroy has accurately spotted a few other trademark filing information in the past, a now has found that the company is applying to get “Surface Studio,” “Surface Dial,” and “Dial.” It’s unclear if Microsoft is behind the filings, as an unknown Slovenian company is actually doing the trademark work. However, the unknown company also applied for the “Surface” name, which Microsoft already owns, and it happens to be represented by a law firm that has previously helped Microsoft get trademarks.
In addition, Conroy found out that Microsoft has filed trademarks for “Surface Laptop” and “Print 3D,” which makes sense as the company is already building a Paint app with 3D capabilities.
“Surface Studio” could actually also be the name of the all-in-one as it aligns with previous information recently published by ZDNet. Mary Jo Foley says in its report that new Microsoft all-in-one device could be a product that “can turn your desk into a studio.”
