Windows "According to an inside source, a session was held at Microsoft's recent TechReady15 conference in which all the launch details were laid out. If things go according to the plan detailed then, the Surface for Windows RT tablet will be launching October 26th - no surprise there - at a compelling price of $199." My wallet just squealed in pure bliss.

Zune was a sideline and its not realistic to even compare the two.

This could make or break their whole OS (the core of their dominance). This is why they took the incredibly bold step to become an OEM.

MS will market this (and by proxy windows 8) Everywhere they can and then some.

My prediction is that the marketing will be on a scale we haven't seen since Windows 95. In the UK, Microsoft bought the Times of London for a day, printing 1.5 million copies of a special edition and giving them all way free!
