Microsoft’s Windows RT devices haven’t exactly been as popular as Microsoft had hoped, now according to a recent report Microsoft will be dropping the price of Windows RT for manufacturers.
This would mean that tablet makers would be able to reduce the price of their Windows RT based devices, which may in turn end up making the tablets more popular with consumers.
Microsoft is using the changes to try and get more manufacturers to adopt Windows RT, a version of its flagship software for tablets, said the people, who asked not to be identified because pricing is confidential. The price cuts affect Windows RT for small-sized tablets.
Microsoft has yet to confirm that it will offer Windows Rt to OEM’s at a lower price, there are no details as yet on how much the price will be reduced, and how much of the saving will be past on to consumers.
