Almost four months after Microsoft announced the Surface, the price has leaked for the RT version of the tablet device.
Microsoft briefly published the pricing on its own on-line store, but quickly pulled it.
The on-line store confirmed the 10.6-inch Surface RT will contain 32 GB or 64 GB of storage and be priced at $499 and $599. The Touch Cover will retail for $119.99 and the Type Cover for £129.99. A 32 GB version with a Touch Cover included will be offered for $599. The 64 GB version ships with a Touch Cover.
No hint at UK pricing, but we can probably simply change the $ to a £.
The Surface RT will go on sale on 26th October 2012, the same day as Windows 8 is released. There are no details to say if the Surface launch date is USA only, and no firm date for the launch of the Intel processor version of the Surface.
I wonder how many people will be dragged into the frenzy(!) and purchase the RT version only to realise it will not run their normal Windows Applications?!
