This should not come as a surprise. It is no secret that the Surface RT has not been selling too well, and the best option for Microsoft is to slash prices. This has been done by the sizeable margin of 30 percent. The basic 32 GB version of the Surface RT can now be picked up for a cool $349, down from the original $499. The same for the bigger 64 GB version now stands at $499, which originally was a quite hefty $649. Maybe these are the prices that the tablet should have launched with, though going by the demand the Surface tablet range is now experiencing, Microsoft could be even more ruthless in slashing prices.
Microsoft had first embarked on an aggressive advertising campaign with the Surface RT, to no avail. The next target for Microsoft is to get rid of the unsold Surface tablet devices it has in its inventory, of which there seems to be plenty. Whether there will be another round of price cuts accorded to the tablet remains to be seen.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
