The Verge reports that Microsoft is planning to drop the prices of its Surface RT tablets by $150. The lower prices, which will go into effect on Sunday July 14, are likely the result of lackluster sales. Microsoft has heavily marketed Windows 8 tablets in recent weeks, incuding 4 anti-apple ads highlight the iPad’s inability to multitask and its lack of built-in productivity software.
Microsoft’s new pricing will be as follows:
– Surface RT 32GB: $349.99
– Surface RT 64GB: $449.99
– Surface RT 32GB with Touch Cover: $449.99
– Surface RT 64GB with Touch Cover: $549.99
Microsoft has also suggested that new versions of both the Surface Pro and the Surface RT are in the works, along with a number of new accessories.
