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.

Well, it seems like Microsoft is pulling a "need for speed" down the road to guaranteed failure.

Define "failure". Microsoft doesn't need to make any money on these machines. At all. What they need to do is set the bar so that their OEM partners produce better hardware. And, by that standard, they succeeded.
