There has been much speculation about the release date of Windows 8 [2]. Earlier this month Microsoft put much of the speculation to rest by announcing Windows 8 and Surface tablets [3] will hit stores by the end of October. Now Microsoft [4] has officially announced the exact day when Windows 8, and presumably Surface tablets also, will be available for sale: October 26, 2012.

Come October 26, 2012 consumers will be able to purchase Windows 8 in 109 different languages in 231 markets across the globe, whether that be a full retail version or a highly discounted upgrade pack [5]. Although the Surface tablets aren’t specifically mentioned in this new announcement, they will also presumably be available on October 26.

Are you ready for what is being touted as the real ‘Post-PC’ era? We have a comment section [6] for you to let us know.
