Remember the alleged $1,000 price of Microsoft’s surface tablet that was posted yesterday on a Swedish website? Well, it looks like we can finally say that the supposed price was really marked up. The folks over at Techie-Buzz claims that it was able to contact the Swedish website for confirmation. They reportedly received a reply stating that the price on their website isn’t based on Microsoft’s MRSP.
“Just to clarify, we have not received any pricing from Microsoft regarding MRSP or purchasing net cost, and any people who have booked the Surface at this high price will of course have their order adjusted before any product is shipped. So we’re not going to overcharge anyone for being an early adopter,” Webhallen reportedly told Techie-Buzz.
So there you go folks, the speculation about the Surface tablet’s price still hangs in the air. We mentioned that retailers will usually mark up the prices of incoming products, especially the ones that are hot. That’s because it will be easier for them to lower the price rather than to increase it once the product is released.
