Cheap Good Tablet PC Running Windows 8 Coming

Windows 8 is a late entry into the tablet PC market. Its price is rather high, mainly because it does not support small tablets in the 7-8 inch range. Coming from a desktop OS, it primarily worked on 10-inch and higher tablets. Thus, the price are expensive. That is going to change.

Reports Tuesday in Taipei-based Digitimes and the Wall Street Journal indicate that Microsoft will lower the price of Windows 8 for PC makers in the coming months. 
Not surprisingly,that should result in cheaper Windows 8 tablets and hybrids, according to IDC's Bob O'Donnell. 
"It lowers the vendors' total cost, which allows them to get to a lower price point," he said. 
But maybe more importantly, Microsoft has offered another incentive: to spark the market for small Windows 8 devices, any product with a display size of less than roughly 11 inches will get a discount plus a free copy of Office 2013, according to reports.
