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.

Priced themselves out of the $200 market? Maybe because they don't want to sell at a loss. Just a thought.

Yeah, right. the BOM and whatnot of the surface is like ~$400. With no GSM. They get the material from Mars, and sent it to Earth. How can they want to sold it at lost, right, bud? It's so much better than the rest of crap gadget out 'dere. It innovative, from the future.. Smart boy.. ;)
