Microsoft to undercut iPad with $300 Windows tablets

Written by Fudzilla staff



32 devices in the works


Intel and Microsoft are said to be working closely with several major vendors developing Windows tablets. Redmond is expected to launch Windows 8 for x86 in September and an ARM version is also on the way.

Digitimes is reporting that as many as 32 Windows 8 tablets will be launched by HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus, Acer and Toshiba by the end of the year. The aim is to seize a chunk of the iPad market and reduce Apple’s share in the tablet market to 50 percent in 2013.

Of course, it is still early to say how the Windows tablets will fare against the iPad or Android tablets for that matter. They will bring a few interesting features to the table. Many corporate users will no doubt appreciate x86 and Windows compatibility and Microsoft is apparently trying to push hi-res 16:9 panels, thus giving the new a more or less standard PC form factor.

The cheapest Windows 8 tablets are expected to retail for about $300, while high end devices will go for as much as $1000.
