At the time of Surface announcement months ago, Microsoft said that the Surface tablet will release along with Windows 8. Now that Windows 8 availability date has been confirmed as Oct-26th, everyone was waiting for Microsoft to confirm the Oct-26th date for Surface availability as well.
As CNET noted in the recent SEC filings from Microsoft, Surface will be launched on Oct-26th along with Windows 8 as announced before.
“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,”
“In fall 2012, we are launching Windows 8…Its success depends on a number of factors including the extent to which customers embrace its new user interface and functionality, successfully coordinating with our OEM partners in releasing a variety of hardware devices that take advantage of its features, and attracting developers at scale to ensure a competitive array of quality applications. We expect to incur substantial marketing costs in launching Window 8 and associated services and devices, which may reduce our operating margins.”
