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 only skimmed your post (I read it thoroughly the first time you posted it, but don't feel like doing so again), but it doesn't look like you predicted the $499 price. Looks like you recommened that price, then trashed Microsoft for going with the $199 price instead. Am I reading that wrong?

Since the $199 thing turned out to be a false rumor, I don't understand the distinction...

I was just joking about that part anyway. What matters is that they got the price right, not that I said they would.
