Surface RT tablet of Microsoft is close to its launce on October 26th, just in two months time. Microsoft hasn’t given a word on the price of its flagship tablet. Will Microsoft surface RT be at $199 ?
The pendulum of price for the Microsoft Surface RT tablet is swinging and the first one predict is a Swedish site; it claims for the tablet to cost over $1,000.
A source from Engadgeta reports that Microsoft is launching its Windows RT-based tablet on October 26 for a suggested retail price of $199.
The first time when Microsoft unveiled the Surface, it was rumored to be comparable to other ARM tablets, and it was claimed to be priced in vicinity of an iPad, Transformer Prime; somewhat between $399 and $599.
Now, Google has released its Nexus 7 for $199, and the Kindle Fire is on the same bridge as well. So, the question is, is the notion of a Windows tablet priced to compete head-to-head with the Kindle Fire and the Google Nexus 7 just as baseless as a random number inserted in a Swedish retail database?
That said, it would be more than just interesting to see another front open up in the tablet war with three major operating systems competing on price.
But nothing is confirmed, the tablet and its price is all on its launch.
