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.

If it's well integrated with Active Directory, Exchange, Office, etc, and I assume it is, it will sell very well in the enterprise market.

Not necessarily.

Many are already introducing iPad/iPhone support, which means they've already left the boat and iPads and iPhones are cheaper than these Microsoft Win8 devices - it's kind of sad when Apple can beat you on price.

Those that have not, won't like these price points since they'll be able to get a laptop for that price instead, one that is easier to manage and they already have a policy for.

So there is no real win situation here.
