Microsoft unveiled its plan to release a family of Windows tablets branded Surface. From that point onwards, we've waited patiently, speculating what the pricing could be. Today Microsoft has revealed the pricing for both of the available ARM-based Surface RT tablets on its online store. So, how much are we required to save before looking to make the purchase?
Going on sale on October 26th, the 10.6" Surface tablet powered by Windows RT will be priced at $599 for the 32GB version with the Touch Cover, while the 64GB will set one back $699. But should you desire the tablet wihtout a Touch Cover you'll be looking at $499 for the 32GB version. Not too shabby.
Microsoft Surface RT tablet pricing revealed
Pre-orders will be available shortly for the launch of Windows 8 in the coming weeks. Pricing for the Type Cover (black colour listed only) as an optional accessory has also been revealed to cost $129.99 each, while the Touch Cover has a price tag of $119.99. Unlike the Type Cover, the Touch Cover is available in white, red, black, blue, and purple variants.
As well as the rumour of an already started planned mass-production, Microsoft has already begun to kick-start its advertising campaign for the Surface tablets with energetic videos and graffiti street art. We'll likely see the temporary stores set up by the company spring into action soon enough to meet demand and spread the word to "Click in."
Update: It looks like Microsoft has pulled the listing from the online store. Could we have had a glimpse at something that was not meant to be just yet? Or could we be on the path to cheaper pricing? We'll keep our eyes peeled for more details.
