Report: Microsoft Surface Releasing Alongside Windows 8

According to this Securities and Exchange Commission filings (SEC), Microsoft plans to launch its Surface tablet alongside Windows 8 in or around the month of October.

"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," the filing reads.

Pricing was not discussed in the filing, but we do know that two different versions of Microsoft's entry into the tablet market will be released at some point: one for Windows RT and a more powerful version that uses Windows 8 Pro.
