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.

Is it ridiculous? Maybe. Maybe not.

If it is only the menu then its just a gimmick. But it might include ordering and easy ways to get the attention of the wait staff or to pay the bill. If the app lets them serve more customers with fewer wait staff that is a win. If they can get higher customer satisfaction that is also a win.

If they lose a lot of iPads to drops or spills that may be a loss.
