Microsoft Surface starts at $499

The pricing of the Microsoft Surface Windows 8 tablet has been unveiled.

Microsoft has revealed the pricing of the entry-level Microsoft Surface Windows 8 tablet. AT least TechCrunch got already the information. The link to the Microsoft Store that is supposed the source of the information redirects to Bing. In any case, I assume TechCrunch got briefed by Microsoft. The Microsoft Surface RT tablet with 32GB RAM sells for $499. The 32GB Surface RT with touch cover sells for $599.

The top of the line 64GB Surface with touch cover sells for $699. 

The Microsoft Surface pricing is comparable to the iPad 3 pricing. You are actually getting double the storage with the Microsoft Surface tablet at the same price. I think this is good pricing and will help Microsoft sell Surface tablets in big number this Holiday season. Microsoft Windows 8 partners have now a big problem on their hands. They are too expensive and the Surface is damn sexy.

We expect the Microsoft Surface pre-order to start today.
