Microsoft is expected to release the microsft surface tablets on October 26 wich was shown in the annual report shown by the company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Then it was not known when exactly these devices would appear in stores. That it is somewhere around the release of Windows 8 would have seemed logical.
The document shows that Microsoft, the company on October 26 will start selling the Surface, a series designed by Microsoft and developed hardware devices.
Microsoft announced in early June its own tablet line. The Surface must compete with the Apple iPad to Windows 8 operating system for tablets on the map.
There are two versions of the Surface-tablet on the market: the Surface RT and the Surface Pro.
Microsoft presented last month two tablets, the Surface and the Surface RT for Windows for Windows 8 Pro. The first model runs on an ARM processor and will be mainly aimed at consumers. The second model should appeal to business users since the tablet at the full Windows 8 operating system and features an Intel processor.
The Surface RT for Windows will immediately after the launch of the operating system Windows 8 for sale, the Windows 8 Pro version will appear about three months later, so early 2013. Interestingly enough, there on the prices of both tablets still nothing known. Microsoft announced earlier that the prices will be competitive with similar models, which would mean that the Windows model RT cost between 400 and 600 euros and get Windows 8 Pro model will be for sale for a price between $599 to $999 .
Last week a Swedish website first published a number of awards from the Surface tablets, ranging from $599 to $999. Yet this is not a realistic indicator since the store already has said high prices to have people already use to pre-order. The exact price is therefore to wait. Microsoft has already indicated that the Surface tablets initially only through our own online shop will be for sale. However, retailers can also be ordered here the tablets and then sell themselves.
