According to the Windows Team Blog there are over 800 unique systems certified for Windows 8 and Windows RT. So expect a massive onslaught this fall of Windows 8 laptops and tablets. Most of them are likely just Windows 7 refreshers, but there are also lots of new hybrid designs and of course finally Windows tablets.
Speaking of tablets. Microsoft will release the Microsoft Surface tablets on Midnight of October 26 according to The Verge. I am not sure if anybody will line up at midnight for it though. Heck, we still do not even know the price of these things.
Windows Phone 8 gets its own launch event on October 29 to be held in San Francisco says The Verge. The new Windows Phone 8 smartphones are all set to go on sale in November.
