[sc:windows-category ]Well the wait is over (kind of) and we now know more about Microsoft’s Surface tablet.
Rumors of a $299 price point have turned out to be incorrect but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Surface is a premium tablet, not a low-end one. It’s designed to show what a Windows 8 tablet can be and as such can have a $499 starting point. In fact this still comes in under an iPad in reality as it has twice the storage for the same cost.
Something I think is still missing are some more accessories, no charging stand, no funky covers that aren’t keyboards, no cases, etc. They may be coming closer to launch but it would have been nice to see pre-orders for something else then the video cables and an extra charger 😉
Pre-orders opened last week and I’ve put mine in, I’ll be looking forward to the October 26th deliver!
Now all I have to hope is that, unlike with the TouchPad, Microsoft doesn’t discontinue the Surface within 4 weeks and cut the price to $99 😉
