Rumor: Surface Pro Could Launch Next Month At A Lower Price

Digitimes reports that Microsoft has decided to slash the Surface RT orders in half and instead focus on launching the Surface Pro earlier instead. Most likely next month just in time for Christmas in a bid to attract as many buyers as it can. Sales of the Surface RT tablets are not going as planned, as people and businesses are skipping on the device to wait for the Pro version. Microsoft had initially placed orders for 4 million units, but the report suggests that it will be reduced to 2 million units for the time being. Not just that, word on the street is that a significant price cut is also planned for the Surface Pro, as Microsoft plans a major offensive to make its Windows 8 platform (and ecosystem) a success. At whatever costs it takes. Leaked pricing put the 64GB Surface Pro at $870, while the one with the 128GB storage option was said to retail at $975. Newer prices could nevertheless worsen Microsoft’s already shaky relationship with other notebook vendors. Point. It’ll be interesting to hear comments if you are planning on a Surface Pro tablet soon. What’s your ideal price, and what’s the maximum you can pay for both versions?
