Microsoft confirms Windows 8 launch event in NYC

Microsoft has confirmed an earlier report by ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley that the press event for the launch of Windows 8 will be held Oct. 25 in New York City.

Microsoft is today sending out the invitations, which do not specify time or venue of the event.

The company plans to launch Windows 8 to the general public on Oct. 26, which is also when it plans to make available the Surface RT tablet — Microsoft’s own branded tablets running a version of Windows 8 designed to run on ARM-processor tablets.
