Microsoft Surface Price Rumor

From the department of wild speculation, WPCentral has found a Swedish website that is taking pre-orders for Microsoft’s (MSFT) 32GB Windows RT-based Surface tablet and is charging a whopping 6990 krona, or roughly $1,000. It should be noted that the Microsoft has yet to release any definitive pricing information on its Surface tablets yet, and the company likely knows that charging $1,000 for its base-model RT tablet would be an act of depraved insanity. Pricing can also vary tremendously between markets, so here’s hoping that Microsoft has a little more sense than to destroy its own tablet business before it even launches.
