The $350 price may be right for the Surface RT

Microsoft Surface RT Price Cut

It was obvious to many that Microsoft’s Surface RT was overpriced when it first released but the company’s recent price cut on the device may be giving it a second life. ZDNet notes that Walmart “may have just sold out temporarily of Microsoft’s recently discounted Surface RT devices,” a sign that, at the very least, the price cut is helping the company move some of its inventory out the door. We still have no idea how many discounted Surface RTs Walmart ordered in the first place and it’s unlikely that the $350 price tag will help Microsoft sell off the millions of Surfaces that it over-ordered last year. Even so, Microsoft has to be encouraged that it can sell more Surface RTs without giving the tablet an HP TouchPad-esque price cut down to $99.
