    I guess they are sitting between a rock and a hard place. Looking at the $199 Google tab they need to go with a low price to make Surface a success. But that would probably alienate their traditional hardware partners.

    If they go with a $499 to $599 price, Surface will become a looser. There are too many lower priced excellent alternatives on the market.
