The sources claim that the Windows RT version of the Surface tablet will be priced above Rs 33,800 ($599) and the Windows 8 Pro version will be priced above Rs 45,000 ($799). The mentioned price in India is based on the US price and the actual one will be slightly higher.
After the launch of the Surface tablets, we knew that the RT version was designed aggressively to compete with the Apple new iPad. But, the pricing seems to be sensitive as the iPad models are cheaper. The 16 GB Wi-Fi only version of the new iPad is available for Rs 30,500 in India. ($500 in US).

Now, the company seems to have come again with the Windows Phone UI and the announcement of the Windows Phone 8 operating system for the smartphones.
