With Windows 8 public release around the corner its just aout time for how to books on the same,Dummies is coming with two books this season with one being “Windows 8 for Dummies” and “Surface for Dummies” and not just that they are holding a giveaway this time around not just for the books but with a grand prize of Free Surface Tablet !
What makes it more interesting is that,the Contest hints at the Surface pricing as well,with Approximate Retail value of the prize is being listed as $350.If we cut the books from the total price of the contest then it would bring the pricing further down to an approximately $300 price tag.
Though there is no official word on the Surface Tablet pricing,but as we already know that a couple of weeks ago Steve Ballmer hinted about the $300-800 price range for the surface RT tablets,so this might very well turn out to be the pricing for the entry level surface tablet.
