Analyst: Microsoft is considering a cut in Windows RT licensing fees
Last week, Microsoft made some changes to its Windows 8 hardware certification guidelines that could allow manufacturers to build tablets using Windows RT but with significantly lowered resolution requirements. This would allow manufacturers to build a 7 inch Windows RT tablet. But that happens to be exactly where most of the low priced Android tablets live. And not only do slates like the Google Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle Fire live in that zip code, the Apple iPad mini and it's 7.9 inch screen would be considered competition in that area as well. Perehaps the crew in Redmond should just see how well the licensing fee cuts work on the 10 inch tablets before targeting those 7 inch slates
