Microsoft’s Windows RT Surface tablet is expected to cost $600, according to a report from DigiTimes.
They also reported that Windows 8 Pro Tablet could cost around $800.
Windows 8 Pro Surface tablet is much more expensive than any other big named tablet currently in the market. If these numbers are correct, Surface Pro will be around $300 more expensive than the Amazon Kindle Fire.
Also a lot of cheaper Android tablets are available in the market.
This strategy of Microsoft is very risky as they still need to set themselves in the tablet market. I think they should keep the price of their tablets low at the start so that it could gain market.
Well, the Surface tablet has a lot to offer to the user. Surface Pro tablet is an All-in-One package as it could run even the legacy desktop apps.
I am sure the business users who want productivity with mobility are going to love this.
Still it is a rumor only and there is not yet confirmation from Microsoft.
Let’s see what they think.
