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.

They took the "bold" step to become an OEM because their retail partners were either lukewarm to or half-assing the formfactor they've been trying to push for over a decade.

No matter what happens with the tablets though, it'll still be a sideline. Tablets still have too many tradeoffs to even think about displacing Microsoft's core business.
