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.

As far as I understand, absolutely no one has yet to try either the computer or the keyboard:

Is this still the case?

Microsoft must be so proud of it. Considering their target is Apple's now 3 year old iPad1 you'd think they'd be a little more confident.

If your ad campaign focuses on a plastic snap (which will break) and will cost an additional $120 to even get it in the first place, you are in trouble.

They always shoot for apple and end up hitting disaster land almost every time.
