The Microsoft Surface Windows 8 tablet is creeping closer to launch: and if Redmond has its way, it’s going to give the Apple iPad Mini a run for its money too. According to a new report, Microsoft’s own slate computer will go on sale at the end of this month! Read on for the details.

The Verge reports that the Microsoft Surface Windows 8 tablet will go on sale at midnight on 26 October, after a launch event for press the day before. In the US, Microsoft shops will open as the clock strikes twelve to flog the new tablet competitor: in the UK meanwhile we may have to wait until regular business hours to pick one up.

iPad Mini out this month: Will it beat Surface to shops?

If you’re not sure what the fuss about Microsoft Surface is, it’s a 10.6-inch own-brand tablet running Windows 8, which will compete directly against tablets from gadget manufacturers Microsoft usually licenses its software to. With a super thin keyboard in the cover too, it looks very promising indeed, though journalists have not yet been able to handle the device.

Unfortunately, we still don’t know exactly how much the Microsoft Surface tablet will cost, and the company has given no indication. Will it undercut the £399 iPad? We may only have a few days to wait to find out!
