Pre-order: Surface Laptop | NEW Surface Pro

price cut

Last night, Windows Phone Central reported that Microsoft Stores were poised to reduce the cost of the Touch Cover from the current $119.99 to a more favorable $79.99. That reduction includes all five colors and is set to occur on August 30th online and in Microsoft Stores. The price drop is permanent and not a sale.

We can also now confirm that the Surface RT bundle, which includes both the Surface RT device and a black Touch Cover, will also reflect that price decrease. Currently, customers can buy the Surface RT with either 32GB or 64GB and a bundled black Touch Cover for $449 and $549, respectively.

If you have a Surface RT or Surface Pro and were thinking of picking up one of the colorful Touch Covers, you may want to hold off for eight more days. It has been revealed to Windows Phone Central that Microsoft is planning to drop the price on the accessory from the regular $119 to a more reasonable $79.99.

The new price will be permanent.

The Touch Cover was one of two keyboard accessories that launched with the Surface RT late last year, the other being the more robust Type Cover with mechanical keys. There is no evidence to suggest the Type Cover will receive a similar discount but we’re waiting on more information to see if that changes.

Good news if you’ve been camping out for a chance to grab Microsoft’s Surface Pro; the famous Windows 8 tablet has received a price cut of $100 brining the unit down to a starting price of $799. According to The Verge, the price cut will be available to customers in Canada, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the US from August 4th to August 29th.

Nokia had recently brought down the price of the Lumia 800, no doubt to help clear some inventory for the Windows Phone 8 launch. Seems like the price cut is doing wonders for sales in Finland where it’s purportedly selling out.

The Lumia 800 and 900 with the 100 Euro price cut certainly put them in the too good to miss bargain category. Could this price cut be just what Windows Phone needs to boost those numbers?

Not too much of a shock here, but we surmise that the LG-E906 aka the Jil Sander phone is probably not selling too well. First made available at the end of November for £299.99 ($460) the phone dropped to £199.99 sometime before Christmas. Now the phone has taken an even further price cut, 50% from the original, to a pretty sweet £149.99 ($231) which ain't half bad for a phone with 16GB internal storage.

To recap, the Jil Sander phone is a collaboration between the famous fashion house and LG. In fact, it's the only "new" phone from LG with Mango and it's not even that original as it is basically an Optimus 7 with some new styling. In that sense, its stats are a little under whelming with a 1Ghz CPU, 3.8" screen and a 5MP camera.

Having said that it is rather stylish and for that low price with no carrier ties, something worth considering.
