A lot of people have been wondering, including us, how much the Microsoft Surface tablet is going to cost. Rumors are spreading constantly.
Reputable websites have "reported" that the Surface will sell for as little as $200 or as much as $1000. Of course Microsoft has not said a word about how much it plans to sell the tablet for.
One thing to consider is how late Microsoft is to the game of tablet computing. Apple has dominated the tablet marketplace with the iPad. Microsoft is at least 5 years behind and it will take a few years for them to work out any possible kinks after initial release.
Perhaps Microsoft will sell the Surface at a loss, or simply break even, in an attempt to gain a foothold in the market. One thing is certain though, it will take a lot of work for Microsoft to put a dent in Apple's dominating share.
It will be extremely interesting to see how it all plays out. At least for now it is yet to be known how much the Surface is really going to cost.
