Windows "According to an inside source, a session was held at Microsoft's recent TechReady15 conference in which all the launch details were laid out. If things go according to the plan detailed then, the Surface for Windows RT tablet will be launching October 26th - no surprise there - at a compelling price of $199." My wallet just squealed in pure bliss.

At no price...

Microsoft could give the tablets away and I wouldn't have an interest in it...I would rather pay full price for an iPad, any day....

Sorry, but Windows 8 is horrible. 'Metro', or whatever they will be calling it, is a sad excuse for a touch interface...

They should have hired someone (UI Designer, maybe?) to design a UI that is actually enjoyable to use, instead of these awful flat tiles...just horrible interface....

I'd rather get an Android.

Both Apple and M$ sucks equally.

The more times I see people write "M$", the more tempted I am to start writing A₱₱le. For that matter, why not $tallman and £inux?

Dunno about wanting one (Metro) but don't get the wonders of the iPad UI...apart from the lovely screen find the iPad UI/IOS crap myself.

Though, depending on the screen and the price being correct, I do have a need for a tablet to read PDF's so, maybe...
