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.

Why do you need full blown multi-tasking and windows on such a small machine is beyond me.

The multi-tasking thing is brought up again and again with Tablets and Phones ... yet iPhones and iPads sell like hot-cakes.

So most people obviously don't care.
