    For the last several months since the announcement of the Microsoft Surface tablet, their has been rampant speculation that the RT version could sell for as little as $199.99. Pricing and a time-frame for availability were the only things that Microsoft specifically didn't share during their official announcement, and they have not given any real hint at the pricing, until now. Here's a quote with some details,

    It's easy to infer from this that Microsoft has no intention of selling the Surface at the $200 dollar price point. In fact, more than likely, we will see the tablet in the same price-range as the iPad, or perhaps $100 bucks cheaper. The most interesting thing that you can take from his statements comes when you read between the lines. Apparently, Microsoft sees Tablets as the new PC, and are moving full speed ahead toward that potential evolution of technology. Interesting...
