Microsoft is teasing its Surface tablet by listing the device on several product pages around the world.

Microsoft product sites in the U.S., the U.K., Germany, France, and Italy are just some of those showing Surface as an item under the product category.

But clicking on the link for the tablet simply brings you to a U.S. page on Surface with the note "Coming Soon."

Microsoft has been mum on about the price of its upcoming tablet.

CEO Steve Ballmer recently said that Surface would probably carry a price between $300 and $800. That's a wide gap, but it did shoot down rumors that the tablet would be priced at or below $200 to undercut the competition.

Microsoft will hold an event in New York City on October 25 to kick off its ARM-based Surface RT tablet as part of the Windows 8 launch. Surface is then expected to go on sale the following day. The tablet will be sold through Microsoft's retail outlets and "select" Microsoft online stores.
