The year 2012 will see the first Windows 8 Tablet arrive on the shelves but the sources are saying that the tablets will not be free bees as they are going to be priced at a hefty cost. The range for such tablets will start from $600 and they will go as high as $900. The exorbitant price tag is the resultant of the high hardware and high software price that the companies had to pay.
All the Windows Tablets that will appear this year will come packed with Intel chips both the companies Microsoft and Intel are rigid to keep the price tag high for the tablets. As a result of this the tablet with Windows 8 OS will come at a much higher price than expected in the beginning. But there is one reprieve that the Windows 8 Tablets in the next year will come with ARM chips and the price for those tablets is expected to be a little cheaper than the Windows 8 Tablets with Intel chips.
One thing the software giant Microsoft will have to remember that if they want to make the Windows 8 Tablets a success then they will have to–at any cost-keep the tablets cheap so that it reaches to the masses. The tablet users today want high performance and that too at a low price tag and the matter of concern for the company is that the Android based tablets are doing the same. That is why the Windows 8 Tablets will have to compete with the Android Tablets as well; there is the giant called the iPad too, raring to go with the LTE enabled iPad 3.
At the present moment there is no official announcement on the topic, but the Windows 8 is set to arrive in the month of October and the Intel’s Clover Trail chip is also set to debut at the same time. So it is natural to conjecture about the emergence of the Tablet somewhere in the month of November. Let us wait and see what exactly happens as far as the price is concerned.
