Microsoft Surface tablet possibly priced at $199, release date October 26th

Microsoft Surface Tablet

As we are heading closer to the early fall, where a lot of new gadget are being debuted, Microsoft has still to decide Surface tablet’s price tag. There have been backed up rumors that the tablet will be priced at $199 as Acer has been begging Microsoft to increase the price. The reason behind the plea is that Microsoft will be selling the tablets at a loss and will hope to earn its massive profits from accessories and add-ons to Windows 8. However, Acer cannot afford to do that, as their company’s cash reserves are dwarfed when standing next to Microsoft’s and they don’t even own the operating system. Although hopefully, for consumers sake it will be priced a $200. In other words, for $200 its a no-brainer purchase, if they decide to sell it at around $500, people will consider it, but at $1000 (around the same price as ultra-books) there’s no way that anyone would buy it, unless they have cash to spare. Finally, on October 26th we’ll hear how much our wallet will have to cry out when empty them.
