Microsoft is all set to launch the next generation of Windows OS, Windows 8 on 26th October and on the same day it will launch its own home made Windows 8 tablet, Microsoft Surface. Even the hardware partners of Microsoft has already started taking pre-orders for their Windows 8 Ultrabooks, Tablets, Convertibles, and All-In-One Desktops but Microsoft is still showing the Surface Windows RT tablet as coming soon on its online store. And not a single word has been said on Microsoft Surface Tablet pricing officially till now.
Few of Microsoft’s hardware partners like Acer is not happy with Microsoft launching its own Windows 8 tablet in the market. The Acer’s spokesperson said that “On one hand Microsoft is our partner, but on the other, Microsoft’s move makes them compete not only with us but all PC makers. We think that Microsoft’s launch of its own-brand products is negative for the whole PC industry.”
It is highly rumored that Apple is going to launch iPad Mini on 23rd October, only 3 days before the official launch of Microsoft Surface tablet, and expected to kill the Android’s 7-inch tablet market by offering the quality of iPad at cheap prices. So, if Microsoft wants Surface to be a hit, pricing is going to play an important role in it.
Microsoft Surface Price
And the latest update we are getting on Microsoft Surface pricing is from the sources of a Seattle based local news agency saying, “We have talked with a local Microsoft Store employee regarding their excitement about the launch of Windows 8 and Microsoft Surface RT tablet on 26th October. He replied that they are just keen to see the smiles on faces of their customers when they will own Windows 8 and Surface tablets.” On asking further about the pricing of Surface Tablet, he said that Microsoft Surface is priced very much attractively, will shock everybody and you will surely stop thinking about buying a 7-inch tablet and we are not allowed to tell the exact figures till now and I am a loyal employee of my company, so I can’t comment any further on it.
But this comment has actually gave us the idea that Microsoft Surface tablet is going to be priced somewhat from $299 to $399. This is our prediction till now, we are still waiting for any kind of confirmation from Microsoft.
