A banner ad on Gizmodo advertises Microsoft Surface Pre-ordering, but links to Bing.
Is Microsoft launching the pre-order of the highly anticipated Surface tablets today. The Verge spotted a banner ad on Gizmodo that advertises the Microsoft Surface Windows 8 tablet and invites to pre-order. Clicking on the ad takes you though to Bing search result page for: Surface Microsoftstore. One of the results is linking to the 10.6-inch Surface product page. The cached page (above) shows though only the place-holder price of $0.

Microsoft also launched the first Surface TV Ad. It makes sense that the Surface tablets would go on sale soon. As soon as the Surface goes on pre-order we know the price of course. This is the make or break point for Windows 8 tablets. The prices I have seen so far from other Windows 8 tablets are disappointing and will not challenge the iPad.
