Microsoft Confirms October 25 Launch Event in NYC for Windows 8

While Windows 8 will be made generally available via software upgrades and new PC purchases starting October 26, Microsoft confirmed today that it will hold a launch event for the product on October 25 in New York City. This confirms reports that the firm would hold a “midnight madness” event the night before in order to celebrate the launch and let customers get their hands on Windows 8 as soon as possible.

My Windows Weekly co-host Mary Jo Foley wrote about the October 25 event in Mark your Microsoft calendars: Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 launch dates revealed last month. “October 25, the day before general availability, will be Microsoft's big launch event for Windows 8 and the Surface RT,” she wrote. “And that event will be in New York City, the site of most recent previous Windows launches. Windows 8 and the Surface RT ARM-based devices should be available (at least technically) at midnight, following the launch event.”
