Microsoft Surface Tablet Pricing & Availability

At an mystery event held at Hollywood, Microsoft announced Surface computing devices. Microsoft announced two tablet PCs and with the associated accessories.

Surface for Windows RT – This device will be available when Windows RT gets RTM. That means we could expect the device by September. The device will cost comparable to the other ARM based Windows tablets on the market. My guess is $499.

  • OS: Windows RT
  • Light(1): 676 g
  • Thin(2): 9.3 mm
  • Clear: 10.6” ClearType HD Display
  • Energized: 31.5 W-h
  • Connected: microSD, USB 2.0, Micro HD Video, 2×2 MIMO antennae
  • Productive: Office ‘15’ Apps, Touch Cover, Type Cover
  • Practical: VaporMg Case & Stand
  • Configurable: 32 GB, 64 GB

Surface for Windows 8 Pro – This device will be available after 3 months from Windows 8 RTM. So we can expect it by November- December time frame. And the device will cost similar to the Ultrabooks/Intel based tablets in the market. My guess is $699.

  • OS: Windows 8 Pro

  • Thin(2): 13.5 mm
