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.

Having pushed for the laptop/tablet hybrid approach myself, I agree there is unmet demand for mobile products that just are not being targeted by apple or android devices. In theory these hybrids could meet that demand but I donno about the price though, it's much too steep in my opinion, particularly for ordinary consumers. It's evident that many people have more money to spend than I do though, so who knows.

In any case I won't consider getting one even at the right price unless/until they are jailbroken and I know I can dual boot.
