Microsoft will be unveiling its Windows RT Surface tablets this coming October with a price tag of $199, according to an Engadget source. With the low-end Windows RT version sporting 32GB storage, Office 2013, a variety of connectivity ports, and weighing in at just 676g, $199 would be an excellent launch price. This will definitely put the Surface on the map as an affordable tablet experience compared to competing Android and Apple offerings. The price is certainly lower than Microsoft's own cost, would line it up against the Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire.
For comparison sake - The Apple iPad 2 starts from $399 for the 16GB WiFi model or $499 should you desire the new Retina iPad.
