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.

Imagine it more to do with most iPad buyers weren't Mac users and wouldn't have known, had little preconception, what to expect.

Possible Win RT users are another matter. Unless spelt out in BIG letters, dayglo even, don't discount the possibility large hordes of Windows users will assume any Windows tablet is Windows, full stop. After all, it does look like Win 8...
