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.

If China can build acceptable 89$ ICS/Android tablets why should I buy an overpriced 500$+ WinRT tablet that has zero apps?

All revealed Windows tablets are priced to stay on the shelves.

I am sooo disappointed. ;)


Why was he voted down for this comment? The general reaction has been that the prices are too high.

I guess Microsoft fanboys actually have to watch the bus fall off a cliff and explode before they have a discussion on whether or not the driver might be crazy.
