Good news for Microsoft watchers. It seems that based on what some reporters have found out, Windows RT devices will be priced reasonably.
By reasonably, I mean comparable to the iPad.
Paul Thurrott (who’s usually in the know about such matters) seems to have seen a few of the upcoming devices and knows a little bit about their pricing.

That’s some good information. But there are more questions, and the big one is about pricing. And though I can’t reveal the Windows RT device lineup I’ve viewed, I can tell you that these devices will indeed be priced comparably with the iPad. As a reminder, Apple prices the iPad at $499 to $829, depending on configuration. And not surprisingly, the Windows RT device price range will look shockingly similar to that. Shockingly.
This should be a good holiday season.
