When Microsoft unveiled the Surface Windows 8 tablets everybody was impressed. Microsoft's hardware partners have not been really amused by the foray of Microsoft into making their own brand hardware. If Microsoft is selling the Surface tablets at prices comparable to the Apple iPad than Microsoft has a winner. This would though be a blow to hardware partners like HP, Dell, Asus and others.
Microsoft is possibly not pricing the Surface to compete. WPCentral reports about a leak on a swedish retailer that puts Microsoft Surface tablets prices at $1,000. If this is true than Microsoft will not sell many Surface computers and its hardware partners will be able to sell their Windows 8 tablets. Microsoft would throw away a big chance to get some tablet market share from Apple, by not matching or better undercutting iPad prices.
