Earlier this week, media personnel received invites from Microsoft to a press event in NYC set for September 23. Rumors suggest that company will announce the upcoming Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets at the event.

Microsoft iPad Trade-in

Microsoft is trying to get rid of their current surface inventory one way or the other. Few weeks back, Microsoft permanently reduced the price of the Surface Pro tablet by $100, along with a number of accessories. In another attempt, Microsoft is rolling out a iPad trade-in program at its retail stores that entitles users a credit of at least $200 worth of credit for used Apple tablets.

Under the promotion, users can bring their gently used iPad 2 and higher to the nearest Microsoft store and claim a gift card that can be used to purchase the new Microsoft Surface RT or Surface Pro tablet. If the buyer decides to upgrade to Surface tablets, they can spend just $149 for an entry-level Surface RT tablet or $599 for a Surface Pro tablet.

The offer is valid until 27th of October in Microsoft retail stores in US and Canada, with a limit of one device per customer, and is not available online.

Is this promotion attractive enough for you to trade-in your iPad for a Surface tablet? Do note that Microsoft is also expected to unveil the next-generation surface tablets featuring Haswell and Tegra 4 chips by the end of this month.
