Microsoft recently announced their new Surface Tablet, and there had been rumors that Microsoft would offer a cheaper version of the device which was rumored to be in the $199 to $250 price range.
Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer has said that the Surface Tablet will be priced more in line with that of Apple’s iPad, rather than cheap tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7.
Ballmer told the Seattle Times that Microsoft has a “very competitive product from the features perspective,” with Microsoft Surface, and that “probably $300 to about $700 or $800” is the “sweet spot” for pricing”.
Microsoft will start selling their new Surface Tablet next month, it will be available from the 26th of October, which means that we should get some sort of official pricing from them in the next few weeks.
