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.

This is out of MS's comfort zone and MS has proved time and time again that they cannot perform outside there comfort zone (Zune, WinCE, Windows Phone...).

Disk operating systems, GUI, office suites, or gaming consoles were once outside MS comfort zone, too. And MS has proved time and time again, with a little doze of persistence, to dominate fields they decide to focus on.

PS. And WinCE is moderately widely deployed - the thing about ~embedded stuff: you don't see it.
