Microsoft Surface offical pricing and availability revealed, not as cheap as we hoped

It's taken a while but as promised, Microsoft has finally revealed pricing and availability of the Windows RT-based Surface tablets and accessories. The Surface will be priced at $500 to $700, while the keyboard covers will cost $120 to $130. Sounds a bit dear doesn't it? We were all hoping that the Surface RT will be priced at around the $200 mark as previously rumoured. However, when you consider that Apple's iPad starts at $500 and runs up to $830, then pricing of the Surface starts to seem reasonable.
- Surface with Windows RT, 32 GB: $499
- Surface with Windows RT, 32 GB with Black Touch Cover: $599
- Surface with Windows RT, 64 GB with Black Touch Cover: $699
- Surface Touch Cover (white, red, black, cyan, or pink): $120
- Surface Type Cover: $130
Microsoft is expected to announce international availability of the Surface today as well, thus we haven't bothered to convert the above amounts to Sterling or Euros.
So, what do you make of it? Let us know in the comments.
