Microsoft has started sending out invites for its special “Surface Reception” event, which is going to be hosted by the company on October 25. In the event, along with the introduction of Windows 8, the software giant will also launch its highly speculated Tablet. And sales of the device will be started at midnight (October 26)  through Microsoft’s web site and at Microsoft stores. However, the company has not yet confirmed officially about the pricing for its Surface Tablet, but the price tag is expected to start from $300 to about $700 or $800. An invitation sent to press says, “You’re invited to celebrate Windows 8 on October 25th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.”

At present, we are just a few weeks away from October 25 event and Microsoft is working hard to ensure everything alright for Windows 8’s launch. Today, the software giant has revealed update plans for Windows 8 built-in apps–these apps will be come pre-loaded with the OS. However, these apps will also available through the Microsoft’s integrated Windows Store.

Microsoft wrapped off  ‘Surface Tablets’ devices first time in June of this year that sparked out a linger discussion among its hardware partners. We have already mentioned how Microsoft could entice business professionals through its own Tablets. Undoubtedly, Microsoft has already prompted a Tablet war around the world and now, it’s planning for something big.

Now, Microsoft is planning to intensify the competition in smartphone segment. It’s really very tough to believe, but Microsoft is secretly working on its own smartphone project. Of course, the company will launch its smartphone in order to contend Samsung Galaxy SIII, iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC Windows phone 8X. BGR has recently reported that Microsoft’s smartphone is in the final stages of development and it could be launched in next few month. On the other side, the China Times has also revealed that Microsoft has been working on its smartphone projects for at least four months and the phone will debut in the market in the first half of 2013.

Indeed, Microsoft has adopted never-before-seen strategy, and this time, it’s quite bullish to create a strong mobile ecosystem. The company has tied-up with Nokia, HTC and Samsung  for the prevalence of Windows Phone 8. The OS has somehow succeeded to grab the attention of a significant people around the world and if Microsoft will launch its own smartphone next year, then definitely,  it will get an opportunity to clinch considerable market share of its rivals.

For Microsoft, the success of its smartphone is dependent on the business of its Surface Tablet. If Surface Tablet is succeeded to create a halo effect around, then of course, it will be an additional support for its smartphone shipments. Anyway, the success of Microsoft’s smartphone is indirectly dependent on Windows 8 success.
