Microsoft Surface tablet won’t cost $1000-$2000
Yesterday we saw a Swedish website publish the price of the Surface tablet and Surface Pro, with the base model having a retail price of around $1000. This is considerably more than we were expecting the Windows powered tablet to retail for. The Swedish website in question has been contacted and has confirmed that the price has been marked up. The Swedish website Webhallen has confirmed that they haven’t received any pricing information from Microsoft and any one who has or does order the tablet from them, will have their order cost adjusted before being shipped and is not going to over charge any one.
“Just to clarify, we have not received any pricing from Microsoft regarding MRSP or purchasing net cost, and any people who have booked the Surface at this high price will of course have their order adjusted before any product is shipped. So we’re not going to overcharge anyone for being an early adopter.”
