On Black Friday I ordered the Microsoft Surface RT for $199 at Microsoft online store and last week I ordered the Google Nexus 7 32 GB 2013 edition. Both tablets should be arriving to my home tomorrow. Right now I'm leaning towards the Google Nexus 7, because it has better specs, better reviews, a more established app store and I read that Microsoft will be discontinuing Windows 8 RT.
When Windows 8 Surface tablets launch this fall, maybe Microsoft should steal a page from the Google Nexus 7 tablet launch: Microsoft should sell Surface tablets mainly online and keep inventories low to ensure initial tablet shipments “sell out.” Here’s why.
Google’s 16GB Nexus tablet, which counters Amazon’s Kindle Fire, apparently is sold out.
