So, given that you can pick up an iPad starting at $499 (undoubtedly the king of tablet), a Kindle Fire for $199, and there are even Android tablets that come in at around $99, how much would you be willing to pay for a Windows 8 tablet?
Here's my take. If OEMs can't make Windows 8 tablets come in at a price point that starts at $499 or below then they're going to be a touch sell for everyone concerned. We've already seen what happens to extravagantlypriced tablets. If Windows 8 tablets can't compete with the iPad on price, then they too could very well be toast.
