Official pricing revealed

In addition to the pictures of boxes for its upcoming Windows 7 that will hit retail on October 22nd, Microsoft has finally revealed the official price for each version of its new and shiny OS. Limited pre-order apparently starts tomorrow, June 26th and we are quite sure that these will be quite hard to get but not in lines as for iPhone 3Gs.

Those who already have Vista and XP will need to give the great and mighty Microsoft a sum of US $119.99, $199.99 or $219.99 for Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate upgrade and those that want a full retail disc will need to cough up US $199.99, $299.99 or $319.99 respectively.

Those lucky ones that will be able to pre-order their copy will get it at $49.99 for Home Premium and US $99.99 for Professional. Unfortunately, these are limited and are expected to sell out like hot cakes.

In order to grab some customers, manufacturers like HP and probably even Sony will offer free upgrades from Vista to Windows 7 for systems sold after tomorrow and we are pretty sure that the rest of the bunch will join soon. Guys at Engadget are giving away 100 codes that guarantee a pre-order spot as a part of its recession antidote campaign, so you might want to check it out here.

Windows 7 fever has begun.
