June 20 is going to be a big day for the firms and with three companies unveiling important new work promises, it will be a big day for tech writers getting items submitted in a timely manner.
When it comes to Tesla and Samsung, we have a pretty good idea of what the companies are going to be unveiling. Facebook has managed to put up a smokescreen as to what product or service they'll be unveiling. There have been a number of different guesses and two choices seem to stand out from the crowd.
We won't know for sure until the official reveal, but it's a safe bet now that the social networking site has tipped its hand, more clues will be making their way to the Internet in the next couple of days.
Samsung wasn't specific
about what it plans to unveil, but closeup pictures of three devices on its invitation tell us that they are most likely going to be showing off additions to its Galaxy and Ativ lines.
Smart money says that the Korean electronics company could be showing off a new tablet, a new smartphone and a new PC in the form of a laptop. Whether they will be Android or Microsoft OS-based is anyone's guess
is the only one of the three companies holding big reveals on Thursday that has been fully forthcoming about what will actually be on display.
Elon Musk will personally be demonstrating his company's new battery swap technology. The point of this is to make it that much easier for Tesla users to drive longer distances without having to stop and charge up their car's battery.
Facebook has been the most secretive about what it is going to be showing to the media on Thursday. There appears to be somewhat of a consensus that we're either going to be seeing a brand new RSS reader
that is built to replace the soon-to-be-retired Google Reader, or a video application for Instagram.
There has been quite a bit of talk about Instagram taking on Vine and adding the video application could be a killer to Facebook's competition. There is also a chance that the social media site will be rolling out the long-talked-about Postcard feature. We'll know for sure in a few short days
