Microsoft to undercut iPad with $300 Windows tablets

32 devices in the works


Intel and Microsoft are said to be working closely with several major vendors developing Windows tablets. Redmond is expected to launch Windows 8 for x86 in September and an ARM version is also on the way.

Digitimes is reporting that as many as 32 Windows 8 tablets will be launched by HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus, Acer and Toshiba by the end of the year. The aim is to seize a chunk of the iPad market and reduce Apple’s share in the tablet market to 50 percent in 2013.
