Windows "Asus has a trio of Windows 8 tablets on deck for the holidays, but the pricing is so high - $599 to $1299 for a hybrid - that it's going to be nearly impossible to compete in the marketplace. We were leaked Asus' holiday roadmap and the slide below tells the tale." If this is for real, Windows 8 is screwed in the tablet space. Nobody is going to buy a Windows tablet at prices higher than the iPad.

They most have some really good added value.

Because the price of Android tablets is already pretty low and the trend seems to be to continue downwards:

I followed your link.

7 inch screen vs 10 inch on my net-books.
How much working RAM?
4GB of storage? 80GB SSD in my Toshiba, 270GB in my Acer. And like those tablets I can add SD cards and USB external storage at the same time.

Not saying I would not buy a cheap tablet, but I noticed a lack of details about hardware interfaces on most tablets on sale at present.

I think the point of the article is that prices are low and they will continue to drop. Especially for what is considered higher end right now.
