Microsoft Sends Official Invites For Windows 8 October 25th Launch Event

Back in July Microsoft confirmed the official launch date for Windows 8 would be October 26th, and they have now sent out official invites for the event, on October 25th in New York.

We’re expecting launch of the Windows RT Surface tablet alongside the OS launch, with Intel based tablets following 90 days later.

Much is expected of the Surface RT tablet, and its definitely something we’re keen to get our hands on and try. With enough Windows 8 UI style Apps available the Surface RT could be an excellent competitor to the iPad allowing enough real work capabilities combined with the great new interface and instant-on availability of the iPad to make it a serious player in the tablet space.
