Microsoft has already announced a number of Black Friday 2012 sales surrounding its Xbox 360 console. Today, the Microsoft Store website announced some deals of its own, including a discount for a Touch or Type Cover for its new Surface tablet.
The website reports that the savings actually start on Thursday at 12 am, following the lead of many other retailers this year who will launch "Black Friday" sales on Thanksgiving. One of the deals will give people who purchase a Surface bundle from Microsoft a $50 discount on a Touch or Type cover for the Windows RT tablet. The deal is only good from Friday through Sunday.
In addition, the Microsoft Store Twitter account says that the first 100 people who purchase a Surface will also get a free sleeve that's been designed for the tablet. There's no image yet of what this sleeve looks like.
The page also has listings of other price cuts planned for Black Friday 2012 on Microsoft software such as Office Home and Student 2010, Xbox 360 games and more. They include price cuts of $200 off the Acer Aspire V5 notebook and $150 off the Sony Visio 14-inch Ultrabook.
