    As we just mentioned alongside news of Microsoft confirming the Windows Phone 8 launch event, Windows 8 will be debuting a few days earlier, with an event planned in New York for October 25. Back in September, we learned about some of Microsoft's plans for how it would introduce the Surface tablet to North America, with thirty-some temporary retail locations revealed. Now we get our first look at one of these "pop-up" stores, waiting patiently for October 26 and the start of Surface sales. Come October 26, you'll see Microsoft hooking interested customers up with Surface tablets from ...

    Back around the end of August we were still trying to put together the full picture on just how Microsoft would roll-out Windows Phone 8. Some well-sourced rumors arrived that attempted to pin-down Microsoft's launch event for October 29. Since then, we've seen that date refereed to time and time again as the most likely candidate for the launch. With October 29 now just over three weeks away, Microsoft has finally made things official, sending out announcements for its launch event that Monday in San Francisco. Microsoft has been saying this whole time that, despite what it's shown us of ...

    We just shared with you the latest pic to arrive of HTC's rumored Accord/8X Windows Phone 8 handset, which we've been wondering if it will show up at tomorrow's HTC event. With the clock ticking down, HTC has a new teaser for the event up, and separately, we've noticed something interesting going on with tablets at HTC's site. First up: the tease. There's precious little to see here, but that clock looks a heck of a lot like the one from Windows Phone, making us a bit more confident that at least some of the three rumored HTC WP8 models will be on the menu tomorrow. That doesn't discount ...

    To say that we were very impressed with Microsoft's unveiling of its Surface tablets would be an understatement; considering they're the company's first stab at this form factor, the sophisticated yet utilitarian design really caught us by surprise. We've spent the past few months thinking about getting our first chance to actually try out one of these babies, and have killed some of that time looking into some of the rumors for what Microsoft might end up charging for the line. So far, they've been all over the place, from the very high-end to the incredibly affordable. We're still ...

    Remember a few weeks back when a retailer posted some pre-order prices for Microsoft's Surface tablet that were nothing less than astronomical? It didn't take long for the truth to come out, that these were little more than guesses and didn't reflect any actual knowledge of what the tablets would actually cost. Microsoft has yet to provide the official word on prices, but there's a new rumor now that seems to be the opposite of last month's, painting the picture of a very budget-priced Surface. Supposedly, the source behind this new info comes from a closed-door session Microsoft held at ...

    When Microsoft unveiled the release date for Windows 8, its next generation operating system, the company remained silent about the availability of its own Surface tablets. We suspected that the slates will land shortly but now Microsoft has officially confirmed the release date (even though it hinted towards it in the past). The Redmond-based company's annual U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission report says: "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 ...
