Is it me, or do you think that Windows-powered tablets do not have a generally bright future? That is what one would mull over after hearing that the Microsoft Surface Pro has just received a $100 price cut, and this time around, the recently introduced Acer Iconia W3 8” Windows-powered tablet (in June this year in fact) will get a price cut. This is less than three months after pre-orders were taken, where it will cost $80 cheaper than the $379 listed price for the 32GB model.
The Microsoft Store website points to a new $299 price tag for the 32GB model, while the 64GB model will also be more affordable for the masses, where it will retail for $349 a pop. This price cut was also found on other retailers such as Amazon.com and Staples, so it does seem as though it is a common price cut, and not just a special offer by Microsoft themselves only.
