Yeah I'm thinking the Surface Mini would be around 299$ too. I think Nokia might enter in with a similar device at 199$..I remember reading an article on CNN Money a while back and it described windows 8 tabs from Acer as having "good sales"
Microsoft made two mistakes 1) Limited amount of stores to buy at the beginning of product cycle 2)the pricing was a huge turnoff for people .
I remember when the first Ipad came out and sales were quite tepid... and now look at the juggernaut. I think as more quality apps come out for the...
I'm more angry at the fact they don't have it at Best Buy and Future Shop. I don't mind the commercials... A handful of ms stores isn't gonna sell you 5-10million tablets...At least Win 8 phones are selling( more availabilty at stores perhaps :)
The person who spread out these rumours online hasn't been 100% accurate in the past. It would be nice to see a windows phone though... As for surface rt 2...its more likely its coming out 4Q 2014. That's my best guess.
I use seeking alpha, Bloomberg, cnn money and heat map on my android. On my surface I only use Sigfig and the finance app that is already included....there are not too many finance apps on the windows store yet unfortunately. But in general the tablet has been a great experience
