If you were wondering what Microsoft meant by competitive prices for the Surface, well this really is it today as Microsoft finally unveiled the price of the Surface RT tablet …same as iPad.
Surface with Windows RT will initially be available in three versions, a 32GB version priced at US$499, a 32GB version bundled with a black Touch Cover priced at US$599, and a 64GB version bundled with a black Touch Cover priced at US$699.
It will be on sale online in eight markets including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. Pre-order was already started in few countries and in US it will start in few minutes from now.
We’re more excited about Surface with Windows 8 Pro but will sadly have to wait until Q1 2013 for that.
