Microsoft Surface prices announced – maybe a harder deal than anticipated

Microsoft Surface RT

Microsoft has announced its pricing for the Surface with Windows RT. While still enthusiastic about the product, the pricing is certainly no deal breaker at ~$600 with the cover keyboard.

It’s not outrageous, comparable with the iPad + cover pricing, but Apple already has the world in its palm and my eeepad transformer cost ~$480 with the keyboard. Again not saying that the product will under-perform but a more competitive pricing certainly would help in penetrating the tablet market. Mind you, I understand that full Office 2013 RT is bundled and that’s a a nice goodie. We will see on October 28th how things go.
