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.

No it won't.

Enterprise needs absolute control of internal security and that means installing custom software that they likely developed. My company has even went as far as to forbid anyone from bringing in a tablet since they are security risks.

Not to mention the impossible task of even developing software on one of them.

Win 8 tablets can use group policy.

Well, POS (point of sale) system at the the local shop in spain begs to differ, fully touch screen running on what looks Windows NT 4.0 workstation. It could easily be a Metro App.
