    With the October 26th release date of Surface and November for the first round of WP8 devices coming around, what do you think the chances are of a deal when purchasing both?

    I know that at least in the Microsoft store near me, they are CONSTANTLY having different promotions for their new products. When Ultrabooks were first announced, I got 25% off for purchasing more than $1000 dollars in the store. (Zenbook at 999 and the arc mouse). When the HTC Titan was released, I got mine for a penny at the Microsoft store 3 days after launch (admittedly, it was Black Friday, but I beleive they continued the promotion for a time afterwards as well.) Recently, they've been selling Xbox + Kinect bundles for super cheap as well....

    And with my eyes on both the Surface RT and Lumia 920 coming up, all I can think is what a great opportunity having a "bundle" sale at these stores would be for Microsoft (and, more selfishly, for me).

    I mean, I'm probably going to buy them both anyways, but a boy can dream, right....

    I'm willing to bet if you buy the Surface and one off contract, they may do a percentage off. I only say this due to the fact that there are constant promotions on computers and percentage off this and that. If it's tied to a carrier contract, I'm not entirely sure.

    All just conjecture, however.

    I, too, plan on picking up a Surface RT tablet but if they were to run a killer promotion, I'd potentially go with a full-blown Windows 8 tablet. Regardless, I'll be running Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 as soon as it comes to Verizon.
