After announcing its Surface tablets nearly four months ago, Microsoft has finally revealed the pricing for the Surface Windows RT model. These prices are unveiled at the company’s online stores. This 10.6-inch Surface tablet, which is powered by Windows RT can be pre-ordered now and will be delivered by October 26th. The Surface Windows RT 32GB model version without the Touch Cover will cost $499, and with a Touch Cover will cost $599. Microsoft is also offering the 64GB model with a Touch Cover for $699. Touch Cover, as the name suggests is not just a cover, but it also doubles as a keyboard and touchpad.
Talking about in-box contents, then Microsoft will bundle Office Home & Student 2013 RT Preview, Touch Cover (if you opt for a Touch Cover model), power supply, QuickStart Guide, and all the relevant documentation. This tablet comes with a 1 year warranty and 90 days of tech support.
Microsoft has also listed separate prices for its Touch Cover at $119 and Type Cover for $129.99. The Touch Cover is available in different colors such as white, red, black, blue, and purple, while the Type Cover is available only in a basic black color.
The company’s advertising campaign for Surface devices has already kicked off, and Surface street ads are spotted in a number of different US cities.
For now it seems that Microsoft has pulled down the pricing information from its website, but the pricing definitely looks like the real deal.
