Windows After yesterday's TV advertisement, Microsoft finally unveiled the pricing for its Surface tablet - the ARM Windows RT version that is. The cheapest Surface - 32GB without touch cover - will set you back $499. They're aiming straight for iPad pricing here, ignoring the popular cheaper Android offerings. Update: only available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. As usual.

Yeah, Win 8 is designed for the convertable tablet/laptop experience and despite my incredible disdain for letting win 8 anywhere near my desktop tower on something like the surface it is interesting. But the RT is not way to go at this price, its priced liked a high end tablet, has the specs of a mid-range and doesn't have the x86 windows ecosystem to draw from. Call my when the Pro pricing is announced, but based on these prices for RT the full version is probably going to be very expensive.
