Microsoft Surface Tablet

August 22, 2012 Timothy Tablet Technology

Microsoft made news this past week with the rumor its new Microsoft Surface tablet might retail as low as $199 when ordered direct from Microsoft. The $199 price point would put the Microsoft Surface tablet on par for cost with the Android Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire.

If the cost is $199 for each of the three devices, the Microsoft Surface will likely win in the long run due to its hardware specifications. Unlike the Fire and Nexus 7, the Microsoft Surface includes front and rear-facing HD cameras and a full-sized USB port for accommodating flash drives. Add in the new Windows 8 operating system, hundreds of thousands of new Windows apps, and a new keyboard cover and kickstand, and its easy to envision the Microsoft Surface quickly taking market share among low-cost tablets.
