Earlier this year, Microsoft announced launching its first self-branded tab, called the Surface Tablet, but remained tight-lipped about its pricing. In a race of tablets with Google Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle Fire, and Apple’s much speculated iPad Mini, Microsoft Surface Tablet is expected to launch in October amidst some serious competition. Recently, Steve Ballmer, CEO, Microsoft in an interview with the Seattle Times did discuss a price range for the firm’s new tab. He said, “If you look at the bulk of the PC market, it would run between, say, probably $300 [and] $700 or $800. … That’s the sweet spot.” This statement by the CEO puts an end to the rumors speculating that the Surface Tablet would retail between $600 and $1000 for the two different versions.
