I like the Microsoft Surface Windows 8 RT because it comes with Microsoft office soft ware which is probably why it cost so much. it will be sold online or in a Microsoft Store. Folks I Idea just cane to me that since Microsoft is opening all theses stores Microsoft needs products to sell in them so they will sell Microsoft branded Items
Microsoft has it's on PC's line called "Signature" and Will sell "Surface" tablets
and will sell a Microsoft branded smart phone. if they buy Nokia the Question is wiil the Nokia name die and all it's smart phones get branded Microsoft. I hope not because it is possible that Microsoft could sell it someone else in the future.

This is nothing but speculation. I feel MSFT would be able to undercut Apple as they could actually lose/break even just to get it out there.
Remember...they OWN the software. They could not charge for the software or charge very little.

I checked with best buy a 16 gb wifi Ipad -2 costs 500 bucks so a 16 gb Microsoft RT Surface without the innovative key board cover should cost the same with the innovative Keyboard/ Cover and built in 120 dollar Value Microsoft home and student class Office soft ware altogether should cost 650 to 700 dollars a fair price considering you are getting a Keyboard and Microsoft office making it a better Tablet computer for Business People and regular People because a person is able to do something with it right out of the box. if I were Microsoft I would sell the Microsoft RT surface 16gb wifi for 650 dollars tops and that is fair deal because you get a keyboard/cover and Microsoft office software. plus you can surf the web do email and the other stuff. it wont beat an a Ipad 2 for price and available APPS and screen resolution but those things might not matter to some People.

One correction for you. The RT Surface will come in 32gb and 64gb flavors. No 16gb.
