surface pro review 11 640x426Windows 8-powered tablets are not exactly the most popular tablets out there in the market, partly because the platform is still relatively now compared to more established names like Android and iOS, not to mention the number of manufacturers who churn out Windows 8 tablets are few and far in between. Well, this does not mean that Windows 8 tablets will continue to remain obscure, as the right price as well as marketing push might be able to see Windows 8 tablets proliferate the lives of the masses. Intel’s CEO, Paul Otellini, said, “If you look at touch-enabled Intel-based notebooks that are ultrathin using [Bay Trail] processors. Those prices are going to be down to as low as $200.”

Now we’re talking – $200 tablets would definitely cause many people to sit up and take notice for sure, considering how an example of a Windows 8 tablet today such as the Acer Iconia W150 would retail for somewhere in the region of $430 thereabouts. Do you think that there is a future for Windows 8 tablets?
