Windows 8 + Surface Launch Event in NYC Oct. 25th

Get ready for the Microsoft media circus beginning on October 25th, the day before Windows 8 operating system is due to be released. Not a chance will be missed to get the word out that the new operating system, Microsoft Surface and Windows RT have arrived. After the initial glow of the first announcement dies down, Microsoft will then roll out the long awaited Windows 8 phone on October 29th which will go on sale in early November.

Microsoft usually holds big launch parties for major products in Manhattan, including the 2009 launch of Windows 7. You can likely expect big celebrities to show up, along with Microsoft executives. The big question: Will Chairman Bill Gates, who now only works a few days a month at Microsoft, be a part of the launch festivities?
