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.

I really do not like this price. I can understand the reasoning -- they don't to undervalue their product, also cut into their own partners' profits, like Nexus effectively killing all profit margin on Android tablets. However I still do not like the price.

I'll wait for other offerings, hoping lenovo or another partner producing a Win 8 tablet at a reasonable price (maybe around $300).
