Looks like Surface didn't scare everyone off like Microsoft said it might, because today the company announced some official Windows 8 partners.
From the sound of it, we'll see devices from Dell and Samsung all running the operating system. Lenovo is also on board, but we've already heard about the ARM-based convertible RT tablet it's supposedly working on.
Microsoft didn't add any other details as to what these gadget will actually look like, when we'll see them, or how they'll be priced. Windows 8 is coming out October 26, so we'll presumably know more as that date gets closer. [Building Windows 8]
