Microsoft Surface, the company’s belated crack at the tablet whip is to receive a midnight launch event on October 26th, alongside the much-debated OS Windows 8.

MCV reports – by way of The Verge – that Microsoft has begun flooding inboxes with invites to its ‘Surface Reception’ event, which will end with the tablet’s official sale.

Several American Microsoft outlet stores will host the event, although pricing has still to be announced. Get the finger out eh?

The tablet will also launch in the UK in October and again, pricing hasn’t been revealed. More as we get it.
