Price cut for Microsoft Surface RT might not lead to a jump in sales
The reason why the newly instituted price cut might not help the Microsoft slate is that it is taking place during a period of time when Android tablets and Windows powered touchscreen notebooks have also had their prices reduced. Microsoft is hoping to clear the shelves ahead of its next-generation Microsoft Surface RT tablet. Rumors going back to late last year call for the next-generation of the Surface RT to sport a smaller 8.6 inch screen. Another change is expected under the hood where a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is expected to replace the current Tegra 3 that powers the slab.
