Microsoft has confirmed that they will start shipping of Microsoft Surface Tablet line on October 26, the same day they will launch Windows 8 officially.
This declaration has made in its 10-K filing with the SEC for the June 2012 fiscal year.
In Microsoft annual report filed this week with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), they said,
