Microsoft’s Surface tablets are fairly impressive, the Surface Pro tablet being especially so. However, the steep price points of Microsoft’s offerings have failed to entice the users enough. Apparently, the company seems well aware of that and is now working with its OEM partners to bring cheaper Windows 8 tablets to the market.


Windows 8 tablet

To give you a perspective, the Surface Pro tablet from the software giant will be available in two flavors, costing $900 and $1000. From the tablet market’s perspective, that is a very high price, regardless of the impressive specs that this tablet packs.

This lack of interest on the user’s behalf in manifest in the Surface sales so far. During the holiday quarter, Microsoft was able to sell a mere 900,000 Surface tablets or so, a meager number when compared to the tablet sales by Apple and others. As if to remedy this, Microsoft has now announced that it is working with its OEM partners to dish out cheaper Windows 8 tablets in the coming days.

According to the company’s chief financial officer, Peter Klein, “We’re working closely with chip partners and OEMs to bring the right mix of devices.” Elaborating on this further, Klein stated that the company would soon be expanding the lineup of Windows 8 tablets so that users will have greater price points to choose from. In other words, we may finally see cheaper Windows 8 slates.

While the announcement is certainly encouraging, Klein stopped short of announcing any release dates for these cheaper slates. We only hope it is before the users decide to give up on Windows 8 tablets altogether.
