Microsoft has announced the release date for its Surface tablets, and just like they’ve hinted before, the RT version will be released on October 26th along with 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,” Microsoft said (via Cnet).
The Surface Pro tablets will be released 90 days after the release of Windows 8, and it will be Intel based.
Their pricing strategy for the Intel based tablet is not yet decided but this is what Microsoft had to say.
“Suggested retail pricing will be announced closer to availability and is expected to be competitive with a comparable ARM tablet or Intel Ultrabook-class PC,” Microsoft said in a statement.
