'Surface Studio' could be the name of Microsoft's rumored all-in-one PC

As we draw closer to Microsoft's October 26 event, a new trademark filing has outed what could potentially be the name of Microsoft's rumored all-in-one PC, which is expected to be unveiled at the event. As first spotted by The Trademark Ninja blog (via The Verge), it appears that Microsoft is behind a recent trademark filing for the name "Surface Studio," which was applied for through a Slovenian company that has been associated with Surface-related filings in the past.

Aside from the Surface Studio filing, it appears Microsoft is also behind filings for "Surface Laptop," "Paint 3D," "Surface Dial," and "Dial." While the Laptop filing is a bit perplexing, the filing for Paint 3D makes sense given that it's expected Microsoft is gearing up to launch a revamped version of its Paint app with 3D editing features.

It's always best to take these things with a requisite grain of salt, but the Surface Studio naming does seem to line up nicely with earlier reports that the all-in-one could "turn your desk into a studio." In any case, Microsoft's event kicks off right away at 7 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. ET on October 26, so we won't have to wait much longer to see if any of these filings turn out to be real products.
