We have good news Surface fans! The official release date for Microsoft's next big thing is given. The Surface and Windows 8 will launch simultaneously on October 26th! Here's a quote with the complete details,
Today we hear, courtesy of a recent filling with the Securities and Exchange Commission, that the Surface will hit stores on October 26, right alongside the company’s next-gen desktop OS, the touch-optimized Metro UI-sporting Windows 8:
The next version of our operating system, Windows 8, will be generally available on October 26, 2012. At that time, we will begin selling the Surface, a series of Microsoft-designed and manufactured hardware devices.
The prices for the different Surface devices are still a secret, but we expect them to be unveiled at some point in the following months.
Those of you that aren’t really familiar with the Surface should know that the device will come in two configurations, Surface for Windows 8 Pro and Surface for Windows RT. The tablets will feature a 10.6-inch ClearType HD display with 16:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 2 technology, an Intel Core Ivy Bridge processor / an ARM-based CPU by NVIDIA, microSDXC / microSD support, USB 3.0 / USB 2.0, up to 128GB / 64GB storage and Windows 8 Pro / Windows RT on board.
Mark your calendars, it's only about 3 months away now!
