Windows "According to an inside source, a session was held at Microsoft's recent TechReady15 conference in which all the launch details were laid out. If things go according to the plan detailed then, the Surface for Windows RT tablet will be launching October 26th - no surprise there - at a compelling price of $199." My wallet just squealed in pure bliss.

It sounds like it is exactly as locked down as the iPad; maybe more, maybe less, depending on the implementation.

The real question is whether it is as limited as the iPad. The iPad is very limited by the App Store restrictions. How do the Microsoft Store restrictions compare? What will MS allow that Apple prohibits, and vice-versa? I haven't seen a comparison between the two yet. All that we can count on is it being more restrictive than Google Play, for better and worse.
