Bad Sign for Microsoft as Dell Discounts Windows RT Tablet

Microsoft has to help manufacturers permanently lower the price of Windows RT devices. The new $300 starting price of the Dell product is a great start. Tablets running a crippled version of Windows cannot sell for more than $500. Especially in a world of some great, sub-$150 Android tablets.

Desktop and laptop computers are no longer the hot items they've been in the past. Subsequently, Windows software is no longer the cash cow it once was for Microsoft. The upgraded versions of the OS, promised for later this year (in time for the holiday shopping season), need to do give buyers a reason to keep using Windows.
