Surface RT - not less than 25K pesos (w/lowest storage)
Surface Pro - not less than 35K pesos (w/lowest storage)
at ito ang gusto mangyari ng Microsoft, to inspire pc makers to do better, to design better than surface.
this would benefit windows ecosystem all together.
Whatever the case, Trip Chowdhry, the Managing Director of Equity Research at Global Equities Research, said that Microsoft’s partners have recourse. “Their recourse is to do better than Microsoft,” he told Benzinga after Surface was unveiled.
if it's going to cost 20k, it's going to be a hit, i think.
it's a potential blockbuster if they know how to play with the pricing.
I think kung medyo nagtitipid ka, this ASUS Windows RT Tablet 600 would do.
Tested pa durability pag Asus brand.

I think imposible ang $199 price tag.
Microsoft Surface Could Be a Huge Hit at $199
$199? An anonymous “inside source” told Engadget that the Microsoft Surface RT tablet will sell for the amazingly low price of only $199. It would be out of character for Microsoft, but if the pricing is truly that aggressive the Windows tablet could quickly claim significant market share.
In the battle of Tablets these days, only one will reign, and it's really obvious what OS is that..
And.. and it's..... _____________
It's really hard to mention it... May mga magagalit eh..
I don't call that aggressive marketing to get some slice of market-share but a desperation and to beat Google and Apple's mobile OSs. But then again, I don't think that MS will sell their Surface in that low fvckin price.. You know them guys, they are not stupid enough to sell a fascinating product like that with $199 price tag lol.
high-spirited ang HP at ganito dapat. unlike ng Acer na parang batang ngawa na lang ang alam kasi may kalaban.
“I believe Microsoft was basically making a leadership statement and showing what’s possible in
the tablet space,” Solomon told CRN. “Our relationship has not changed at all due to Microsoft’s
announcement. In fact, I applaud it — I think it’s great that they are getting out in front and
[showing] what’s possible.”
Surface tablet less than 2 percent of market, says Dell
Dell executives expect sales of Microsoft's upcoming Surface tablet to be "relatively small."
just 2%??? that is just too small. dell does not seem to think the Surface will do anything in the market.
the Surface needs to be much bigger than just 2% for it to give the iPad any real competition. let's hope microsoft is able to fix this. more good competition to apple the better for consumers.
The reason why he said that is because of disappointment, OEM didn't expect MS to release it's own Windows certified device like surface.
the Surface has a very interesting hardware design concept. it's success will be very much dependent on how the software and hardware interacts to make it at par or better experience in using a laptop or a tablet.
microsoft has 2 huge things on its plate here : succeeding on hardware design and succeeding on software design. both need to succeed. if it doesn't then this will be a flop in the market.
Microsoft acknowledges Surface may trigger OEM hostility
Partial content of the article.. Read more, just click the article title..Computerworld - Microsoft yesterday confirmed what most analysts and company watchers had concluded last month when the firm unveiled its own tablet, that it risks alienating the computer makers which account for the bulk of Windows sales.
In a document submitted Thursday to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Microsoft acknowledged the potential problem.
"Our Surface devices will compete with products made by our OEM partners, which may affect their commitment to our platform," Microsoft said in the 10-K filed for the second calendar quarter of 2012.
The New York Times' Bits blog first reported on Microsoft's SEC filing.
In my opinion, Microsoft knows already that OEM didn't like their move regarding it's certified windows Computer/Tablet. If you must know, Surface has two flavors, one with ARM mobile CPU (Windows RT), and one with Windows 8 pro (Intel Ivy bridge CPU)..
This provocative move of Microsoft could trigger a cold relationship with PC vendors/Manufacturers around the globe, and if that happens, it will not be healthy for the economy. They are directly competing (already) with it's former partners..
I can sense that Linux is now sneaking it's way to lure these OEMS Linux OS anyone?. Me, I want.. If Game publishers ported their titles to this OS.. That's absolutely great!.
at least ang Lenovo, welcome sa kanya ang competition.
hindi sarado ang utak unlike Acer na nanginginig sa takot.
Lenovo exec. praises Microsoft Surface tablet
For sure it's not going to change the partnership. I think it's very welcoming if other people, including Microsoft, come with Windows 8 tablets. I think it's also proof that they really believe that with Windows 8 they can become a serious player in the tablet arena. And to have Microsoft doing that, I think it's a good advertisement for us and other OEMs. [The company is] not negative at all about this move.
