Microsoft's Panos Panay will host a Surface AMA on Tuesday

The last time Panos Panay took to Reddit for an AMA, he announced that a Surface LTE was in the works and seeing that he will be hosting another AMA next week, we are cautiously hopeful he will be as forthcoming as his previous session.

The event is scheduled to take place on Tuesday at 1PM EDT / 10AM PDT and, of course, will be on Reddit. For those of you who are not familiar with an AMA, it stands for Ask Me Anything and is a crowed sourced interview where anyone can ask a question. Questions are typically voted up and down by the community for visibility and those with more up-votes are likely to get answered by the host of the AMA.

With Panay's first iteration of the AMA after the announcement of the Surface 2, he did not shy away from the tough questions that can sometimes happen during these interviews. Seeing that the questions are at the hand of the community, it's hard to avoid the obvious question that will surely arise, such as 'where is the Surface mini'? 

If you forget to set your alarm to remind you of the event, worry not, as Neowin will make sure to keep you posted as the event takes place and will cover any of the good bits that Panay details during session.

I was doing some searching on the new N-Trig pen.

Can someone tell me why the 'normal' N-Trig pen has just the one AAAA battery, while the Pro3 pen has 2 additonal coin batteries? Is this maybe to accomodate the backbutton functionality?

Just curious......

He really seems to love the Surface 3 PRO, saying its a “marvel of engineering," “There's nothing like it,” and “We, the buying public, are not giving it a fair shake.”

They're really trying to cut into the success of the iPad/tablets at the moment. Don't forget your laptop/desktop customers Microsoft (where the majority of your $$$ comes from)!

Panos needs to do more events, he's one of the best presenters they have IMO.

Totally agree. Combination of confidence and ability to convince. He will be a great sales man. But seriously i like him very much.

My only complaint (about him and Apple staff) is that they should tuck in their shirts when presenting!

Ew trying to be formal ;)

I liked Steve Ballmer's presentation style. Fresh and full of life, like a sweaty Mentos.

I wonder how many will ask about the Surface Mini!

That will be the first or second question they'll ask, followed by, "why are they priced so high!?"

Then: Why is it so thick compared to the iPad?
Later: Why did it take 3 generations to make the pro 3 have a good kickstand?

Hahaha...

As a Surface Pro 2 Owner, it's thicker than I'll like but way more powerful than an ipad. Of course people like to nip pick the parts that they can claim bull with.

and as for the kickstand, it's that kickstand every other tablet has, oh wait... no they don't
