|After 10 months of being on the market, Microsoft is shaving approximately $150 off the price of its Surface RT tablet.|
The tablet, the first to be made by the company, will be priced at approximately $350, down from $499.
The keyboard, which Microsoft has marketed as being a key differentiator from the iPad, will still be sold separately for about $100.
"We've been seeing great success with pricing and cover promotions over the past several months on Surface RT in the U.S. and other markets," Microsoft said in a statement. "People who buy Surface love Surface, and we're excited about all those additional people out sharing their excitement for Surface with other people. "
