Over the past few days we have been hearing a lot of rumors about the upcoming Windows 8 tablets and even the one’s coming from the Software Giant itself.
The latest one coming from Engadget,According to some insiders the details for the Surface tablet launch were laid out at Microsoft’s recent TechReady15 event and that Microsoft is planning to put a 199$ price tag for their Windows RT version of Surface tablets which are scheduled to be released on October 26th along with the public release of Windows 8.
If true that would be a direct threat to the likes of Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet in that price range,but it will also compete against its own brothers i.e. the Windows 8 tablets coming from other manufacturers like Samsung,Acer,Asus,Dell,Lenovo.Quite recently Acer’s CEO raised concerns about the Surface tablets impact in the tablet industry.
Still its yet another speculation at the moment,since there is no official word on this from Microsoft.But it remains to be seen if Microsoft goes this way will they be able to recover from the losses with the app sales over the Windows Store?We will have to play the waiting game now.
