Some Windows 8.1 powered tablets cut in price at the online and physical Microsoft Stores

0. phoneArena 02 Feb 2014, 02:19 posted on

Microsoft has been taking a scissor to the price tags of the Windows powered tablets it is offering online and in its bricks and mortar stores. Some of the deals will expire after Sunday. For example the 32GB Dell Venue 8 Pro, an 8 incher powered by an Intel Atom Z3740D processor, has been reduced to $229 from $299. That's as low as Microsoft goes with the sale...

What's wrong with RT? How is it different from the iPad, and Android tablets?

Not as good app store, both in quantity and quality. Yes, it has Office, but iOS and Android have Quickoffice. (And if you get iPad, you have iMovie, iPhoto, Garage Band, Keynote etc.) And if you want multi-windows, Samsung has that. But if you don't care about missing apps and you like M$ Metro Style and experience, RT is ok, though there are many great tablets with full Windows 8, for example these listed here.

Only because the app store is smaller... Who cares.. The store is growing, and it's not exactly empty...
When was the last time you browsed the store to see just what it has to offer?
Sounds like you're just repeating the same old BS that others say... Give me a real reply sometime... Nothing you say ever is significant...

do not be shocked if the first Surface Pro remains at a low price because I bet Microsoft's
"Surface Pro 3" will be revealed at the Mobile world event near the end of this month. if a person wants a portable backup computer tablet the original "Surface pro #1 is not a bad deal because you would usenit as a back computer that you plug into a wall electrical outlet.
Microsoft has and will continue to give Firmware and software updates the Original "Surface Pro. but the surface Pro #2 has better battery life and a 2 position kick stand that makes it
more of a Laptop Computer

You need at least 128GB in a Windows 8 tablet.
