More on Microsoft Surface: The WSJ reports Microsoft has placed Q4 orders for 3M-5M Surface tablets, a level said to be on par with initial production for the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7. The pricing for the RT models, which don't support existing Windows apps, indicates Microsoft is either: a) Comfortable competing against the iPad without a pricing edge, in spite of the iPad's huge lead in mindshare and apps. b) Keeping prices relatively high in order to placate disgruntled OEMs.
