Windows RT to cost device makers $80-95?

Posted on Tuesday, June 12 2012 @ 21:42:59 CEST by

VR Zone heard at Computex that Microsoft will be charging device makers a lot more for Windows RT than previously anticipated. It was rumored that the ARM-based version of Windows would be offered for about $35 but the site heard that it will actually be around $80-95, with $85 being the most commonly quoted price.
This means that there is no way that a similar specced Windows RT powered device will be priced in the same league as its Android-ARM competitors. While this opens a path for more impressive devices, it seems to us that Microsoft and Intel both took the Ultrabook route and charge “an arm and a leg” for the RT-powered tablet. Given that NVIDIA’s BoM (Bill of Materials) sped past the $100, there isn’t a lot of room for sub $500 tablets. In fact, we were told that the launch tablets will probably go for $549-799, which isn’t exactly the most affordable product. Premium products will go for $799 and $899.
