Microsoft plans “major announcement” on Monday

Microsoft just send a cryptic press invite for a “media event” in Los Angeles on Monday, June 18, at 3:30 pm. 

No details on what will be unveiled. Only this: “This will be a major Microsoft announcement – you will not want to miss it.” Microsoft isn’t even telling us the venue location. It plans to send that to registered attendees on Monday morning.

These kinds of mysterious, sudden events are more Apple’s style than Microsoft’s, so we’re pretty curious to see what’s afoot — and why Microsoft is holding this so far afield from its Seattle-area headquarters. 

LA implies something in the entertainment space. (We’d include an image of the invite, but sadly, it’s all text — no fun graphical clues like Apple usually includes.) Comment or tweet us with your guesses!

UPDATE: The rumor mills say it’s tablet time. Two years after Ballmer told analysts that tablets are Microsoft’s “job one urgency,” we’ll finally get a closer look at what they’re going to throw into the iPad tablet market. Dave and a video crew will be in LA to cover.
