Yesterday afternoon I received an email alert from Microsoft that they are taking pre-orders for their new tablet. This is the one based on the Intel Atom (like the net books) and Windows 8 RT (not the real full blown Windows 8). But, I thought I’d give it a go anyway.
So on October 26th, the day all versions of Windows 8 are released, it should arrive. It is $599 with keyboard cover and 32Gb of RAM.
Microsoft is pushing their solution as content creative rather than content consuming. It may take the upcoming version (can’t pre-order yet) with the full Windows 8 to prove this a viable statement.
