Nice, but still looking for a good deal on a touch cover with keyboard for under $50...

Anyone know if BB will price match this if it was bought at MSRP @ Best buy a few days ago? I have a girlfriend who doesn't value thrift as much as I do, unfortunately.

News today has Microsoft killing Windows RT. Perhaps that explains the fire sale prices.

I do not believe anybody who knows what they are talking about has said that. We know that Microsoft wants to merge Windows Phone and Windows RT. However, nobody knows exactly what that means. It could mean that RT is gone. However, this alternatively could mean that Windows RT will eventually replace Windows Phone. Or thirdly, it could mean that the 2 OS' are somehow blended into something that does not yet exist today.

  Like Windows Phone and RT or PhaRT?

I wasn't able to place order yesterday, but it just went through now. Thanks OP!

And their new strategy: sell at a loss, make up for it in volume!

Jokes aside, RT is most likely on the chopping block. Surface RT owners better hope someone ports Android to their soon-to-be bricks.

  right  just like those millions of computers still running win XP.

Any why would they just roll out the Surface 2 line-up with RT if they were going to kill it?  They are only discounting the original due to Surface 2 starting to ship, IMO.

Either they have to discontinue Windows RT or Windows Phone... I suspect they would dump Windows RT since Windows Phone has a much bigger market share than RT.
That is said, nice device for $199... they should have started with $199 if they are serious in gaining tablet market share.

I guess you could try to rationalize it that way, but there's a big difference between XP and RT. XP was the dominant OS for many years. RT never gained traction in the market. Translation: not as much software, quickly diminishing third party developer support when MS kills it off. But hey it's your money, gamble it as you wish

Out of Stock.

oos

Just ordered one at the $199 price.

"  right  just like those millions of computers still running win XP." Yes. My office still runs on a Windows XP network of 9 computers. For various reasons, I am not willing to upgrade the network. It works. It meets my current needs.

  If Microsoft bails on RT... that will not turn any of these devices into bricks. RT is more than capable for most of us, it just didn't gain market share. For about $200 you just can't go wrong with this tablet  provided it does what you want/need it to.

  Microsoft stated in their monthly partner conference call last week as RT is (not maybe) phased out over the next year in favor of the Windows 8 Mobile platform they (Microsoft) will update existing RT devices to be more compatible with Windows 8 Intel devices and apps. The consensus was MS will remove the current RT apps store "walled garden" and open up the app development platform to more third party development. IOW even though RT may be dead there should be more apps. Only time will tell.

If you bought a Surface RT without a keyboard here's a bundle for you
