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 China can build acceptable 89$ ICS/Android tablets why should I buy an overpriced 500$+ WinRT tablet that has zero apps?


If by 'acceptable', do you mean sub-par? I've not seen one for under $200 that wasn't absolute shit.

Everybody wanting to scrape the bottom of the barrel and demanding a $300 or lower price point is the reason why we struggle to get any decent Android tablets. The only really good one so far is the Nexus 7, but that's missing HDMI, and has anemic storage space.
