Windows "Asus has a trio of Windows 8 tablets on deck for the holidays, but the pricing is so high - $599 to $1299 for a hybrid - that it's going to be nearly impossible to compete in the marketplace. We were leaked Asus' holiday roadmap and the slide below tells the tale." If this is for real, Windows 8 is screwed in the tablet space. Nobody is going to buy a Windows tablet at prices higher than the iPad.

I assume Microsoft will be targeting the business market initially, where Windows is king. So there will be plenty of very large corporate orders for these devices.

Perhaps Thom does not understand that there may be more markets for tablet devices other than personal media consumption.
