No loose lips at Microsoft Surface event

Mashable's Pete Pachal and Lance Ulanoff are on the scene in New York City -- and they're providing live updates on Twitter. Lance has already spoken to multiple Microsoft representatives and they will reveal nothing. All of them just smile back at him and say to wait. Says Lance: “I even asked on guy to blink once forbid we were wrong and twice if we were right. He literally gave me a bug-eyed stare.” 

It's do or die for Windows RT

This much we know about Microsoft's "small" Surface event happening Tuesday in New York City: It will mark the launch of the long-awaited Surface Mini. The Mini will be Microsoft's official entry into the small-screen tablet market, currently dominated by the likes of the Apple iPad mini and Amazon's Kindle Fire.

What we don't know is exactly how Microsoft is going to present its pint-size Surface to the world. The path Microsoft lays out for the Surface Mini will show just how much confidence the company has in Windows RT, the version of Windows tailor-made for tablets but one that so far hasn't found much love from PC manufacturers.

If there was ever a product where running Windows RT made the most sense, it's a small-screen tablet. Windows RT, after all, is the flavor of Windows that tastes best on tablets powered by ARM chips, putting touch-first apps from the Windows Store front and center. Although it has a desktop, it's really only there to run Office, since apps made for Windows 7 (and earlier versions) won't run on Windows RT devices.

Microsoft hinted at Surface Mini's debut in early-May invitation
