October is typically a big month for tech enthusiasts, as both events and fresh gadgets make a lot of noise around this time of the year. October 2021 is a particularly busy one. On the Microsoft side of upcoming goodies, we have everything from Surface madness and the impending arrival of the Surface Duo 2 to more niche items such as the Xbox Series X fridge, also known as the meme that became a real boy.
But there's more to tech than just Microsoft, contrary to what some may tell you! Techtober 2021 is also putting a spotlight on items like the iPhone 13 and Pixel 6. Are these the devices you're most amped for?
Let us know what you're feeling most jazzed about, even if it's an item not on the list. Perhaps there's a tiny little Techtober treat not on the general public's radar that has you stoked. If so, vote that way and drop a comment detailing what everyone should be paying attention to. After all, there's no wrong answer when it comes to what gets you excited, contrary to what some might say when confronted with the notion of voting for the iPhone 13 over the Xbox Series Fridge on a site called Windows Central.
And if you want to focus on Techtober events instead of individual gadgets, go vote in Android Central's poll that asks which Techtober event readers are most excited about. AC gives an overview of what events are coming up in October from Apple, Google, Sony, and Samsung, and details when said events are going down.
Two polls, one jam-packed Techtober full of gadgets and events. Truly, an exciting time for mainstream tech enthusiasts and a scary time for wallets.

Duo 2 for sure for me, but also I think I'm excited for the Surface Laptop Studio. I've already preordered the Duo 2. I think I'll probably get the SLS too, but not 100% on that yet. I don't NEED to replace my 15" HP Spectre x360 yet, but much prefer the design of SLS. My budget after Christmas purchases and if MS adds back some features to Windows 11 Start and Taskbar will likely determine that. If MS hadn't gutted their capabilities, I'd definitely find a way to buy the SLS.
duo 2 and pixel 6
and arm based computing
I voted Mini Fridge because, realistically, it's probably the only one I'll buy this year.
Stop trying to make "Techtober" happen.
I'm interested to see the Pixel 6, but if it has a selfie camera cut out it'll be a pass for me. I'll just go for the Xiaomi Mix 4 instead for my next phone.
Duo 2, all variants sold out in the UK... As a professional who likes to game, I went Razer after the Surface Pro 4... Blade Stealth with Core X, my perfect set up... The Pro 8 would have been my Surface product of choice if I'd have taken that route... Waiting for Mr Mobile's review of the Duo 2 before ordering...
I've never been a Mac guy, but I gotta say I'm looking forward to hearing about the Mac Mini with M1x chip in Apples event today.
I'm waiting for the HP 16" Spectre x360 w/ OLED 4K and RTX3050 ti. It's supposed to be available in Oct. but I doubt it will.
