Microsoft’s Surface tablet sure does look like a nice piece of kit, however stylish looks and power come at a price – and quite a price judging by rumours surfacing today.
It seems that Microsoft have no intention on trying to compete on price in the crowded tablet market. According to WPCentral, a Scandinavian retailer Webhallen states that the entry-level 32GB model will retail at a pant-wetting £650.
As MCV points out, this places it well above the entry-level 32GB iPad, and even above the 3G version that retail at £479 and £579 respectively.
Even the upcoming Google Nexus 7 tablet – which much smaller and contains less features than Surface – is hitting the market at a wallet-friendly £159.99.
Can Microsoft really justify breaking peoples bank balances for their tablet?
