Microsoft Windows RT Surface tablet will be sold for $199, according to a rumor

We know Windows 8 , Windows RT , and Microsoft Surface tablets  will be released on October 26 . What has been eluding us is pricing for the Surface tabs, and pricing is critical to the success of these tabs. With the Nexus 7  and Kindle Fire  dominating the sub-$200 market and the iPad  dominating the $500 real estate, the right price can make Surface while the wrong price can break Surface. We still have no hint about the pricing on Windows 8 Pro  Surface tablet, aside from being told it will be priced like an ultrabook, but a new rumor has emerged about how much the Windows RT Surface tablet will be sold for: $199.
Quoting an “inside source” from Microsoft ‘s TechReady15 conference, Engadget is reporting the Windows RT version of Surface tablet will be sold at a starting price point of $199. It isn’t entirely clear if there will be different versions of tablet which will cost more, such as how the Nexus 7 8GB is $199 while the 16GB version if $249 or WiFi-only and 3G/4G versions, but a starting point of $199 is extremely juicy. Seeing as the Windows RT Surface tablet is a 10 incher, it will likely shake up the market — where the $200 price level is left squarely for 7 inch tablets — if indeed this rumor turns out to be true. I don’t know about anyone else but I can say this much. I wasn’t initially too interested in Windows RT but for $199, this is the first tablet I will purchase. How about you? Let us know in the comments  below.
