Microsoft Surface (MSFT) will ship on Oct. 26, the software giant discloses in its FY12 10-K. Pricing details remain non-existent. Also in the 10-K is a paragraph claiming Microsoft is driven to compete with the "vertically-integrated model" of a rival (no doubt Apple), even at the risk of hurting margins and alienating partners. Steve Ballmer suggested as much recently.
