Microsoft Surface Tablet is just 10 days away from official launch and various sources have started spilling beans of it. Today, company first revealed the price of its 3 variants and now the first ever TV Ad is rocking the world. Though, the first look of Microsoft Surface makes the tablet quite impressive but what is striking more here is its unique magnetic ‘cover-cum-keyboard’ with inbuilt stand.

Microsoft Surface Price: $499 to $999

Microsoft Surface will be available for $499 for 32 GB version and for $599 with ‘own-styled’ cover cum keyboard. While, the Intel powered variant of Microsoft Surface would start from $999. Though, Microsoft has denied stating anything over the such rumors but speculations are being made that the company could introduce only Wi-Fi version of Surface initially rather than introducing whole range. If we believe on rumors, then company has intelligently priced the Surface keeping it directly against Apple iPad – which is tagged with almost similar price.

But, if Microsoft really wants to win the battle against Apple iPad, it will have to play the cards in well-calculated manner – from the very first move. Therefore, rather than cutting the cost of $999 version or 3G version at later stage, it would be much ideal move for Microsoft to keep the price low from the beginning like Amazon.
