Microsoft’s hotly anticipated “Surface” tablet was unveiled this past Tuesday and it looks like Windows 8 partners may not have much to worry about when it comes to pricing. Sources close to Microsoft are saying that the Nvidia Tegra 3+ powered RT model will be coming in at or around $599 and the more powerful Intel Ivy Bridge powered Windows 8 Pro will be landing at $999 retail. Sources are also saying that Microsoft is not trying to make a move into the hardware business and is only trying to garner consumer interest for Windows 8 tablets. Traditionally the sweet spot for tablet hardware has been the $199 to $399 range for everything that does not arrive from Cupertino. Microsoft stated that the Windows 8 Pro would be shipping 90 days after the RT version and would carry a similar price to current Ultrabooks.
We will just have to wait and see if consumers are willing to part with so much of their hard earned dollars for these new Microsoft Surface Tablets. Although Microsoft has not revealed a release date for any of the Surface Tablets, it is widely speculated that they will arrive on or around the release of Windows 8 this fall. What do you think? Are you willing to pay up to $1000 for some Surface action?
