Microsoft "Microsoft's Surface RT is getting price cuts across the world this week as the company looks to boost sales of its first ever tablet hardware." Great vote of confidence on a platform barely out the door.

They are just clearing the inventory before launch of Surface RT 2.

We will see who is right.

Yes, but they usually don't have a problem unloading their old models. Microsoft does.

Agreed, surface 2 is coming. I think the reason they didn't sell them for cheap before(as speculated) was to avoid pissing off their partners.
