We just got the official invite from Microsoft to check out Windows 8 and its new Surface tablet at a press event in New York on October 25.
Microsoft was widely criticized for keeping the Surface tightly guarded at the tablet's unveiling in June, but only a few people got to actually try it out. Now Microsoft is promising a "Microsoft Surface reception" following the final Windows 8 demonstration. We assume that means everyone will finally get to try it out.
The Surface is expected to launch on October 26, but Microsoft still hasn't announced a price. We're expecting to know all the details by October 25, or when the first round of early reviews are published.
