Microsoft guns for Nexus 7 with US$200 Surface Windows RT

It looks like October 26th may be a date where Windows 8 blows the world away – at a bargain basement price

The Microsoft Surface Windows RT tablet won’t just be slimmer and lighter than the iPad – it’ll also be cheaper, with a reported price of US$200 (£130).

If true, that price – revealed by Engadget’s inside source – places the Surface Windows RT in direct competition with the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire, and with better specs to boot. That means a 10.6in screen at 1366×768 resolution, and a Tegra 3 quad-core chip – plus of course that brilliant case-cum-keyboard and the powerful Windows 8 RT OS, too. It’s expected to be in our hands on October 26th.
