Microsoft had this grand vision of jumping into the tablet market with a pair of tablets built around Windows 8 -- one with ARM inside and the other a x86 slate running Intel hardware -- but the company may have overestimated the competitive landscape. Reportedly, the Redmond software giant has cut its Surface RT orders with overseas suppliers in half after failing to generate the kind of sales figures it was anticipating.
Generally speaking, guessing games are fun, just not when it comes to having the guess the price or launch details or a highly anticipated product. Good news, then. You can stop wondering how much Microsoft's Surface with Windows 8 Pro (Surface Pro from here on out) tablet will cost or when it launch, because Microsoft revealed both today. Short and to the point, Surface Pro will hit store shelves in January, 2013. Pricing details after the jump.
