Microsoft's Surface has a release date. The tablet will launch on October 26th. Reports about the tablet's release date were originally seen in a document filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Microsoft has since confirmed the Surface's release date. October 26th is also the date Microsoft will launch the Windows 8 operating system.
The report reads, "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."
Upon launch in late October, the Surface will be available as a ARM-based version that will run Windows RT. An Intel-based Surface tablet with Windows 8 is expected to ship 90 days after launch.
