Microsoft Planning Midnight Launch for Surface Tablet

Following the product popping up on several Microsoft product pages, there are expectations now of a midnight launch for Surface.

Along with Windows 8, Surface will release at midnight on October 26. The tablet will utilize the Windows 8 operating system, which will feature a tablet interface called Modern UI -- the interface is already available on Windows phone.

While the price of Surface still hasn't been announced with just three weeks left till launch, Microsoft stressed earlier in the year that the tablet would be priced at a "competitive" level.

The device will come in two different sizes, with both boasting 10.6" HD displays and a stand. Details such as battery life and RAM, though, have yet to be confirmed.

    I thought the prices were announced at $500 for the no-keyboard version and $600 for the attachable keyboard.
