Microsoft Surface has been given a solid release date, as confirmed in the company’s annual report. Check out all the launch details here.

VentureBeat reports that Microsoft Surface will launch worldwide October 26 2012, the same day as the Windows 8 operating system.

Microsoft’s report is available here, and reads, “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 Microsoft-designed and manufactured hardware devices.”

However, the release date only relates to the cheaper Microsoft Surface model, which houses an ARM processor, rather than the pricier Intel model.

No price has been confirmed yet, but we’ll keep our eyes on Microsoft for details as they come.
