Microsoft may brand the Surface tablet with OEMs partners logos and offer them the device at cost price.
After reading a CRN post about how could be the reactions from Microsoft OEMs partners to the own MS just announced Surface tablet, the only way we see they will agree to keep going with windows 8 on tablets that they are not making themselves, is to allow them to get the Surface tablet instead at the real cost price of each model windows RT and with windows 8 pro , but branded with their logos , or just like it is now with MS`s
Maybe a clue of this vision was made by MS themselves on the Press Release footnote :
"Suggested retail pricing will be announced closer to availability and is expected to be competitive with a comparable ARM tablet or Intel Ultrabook-class PC.
OEMs will have cost and feature parity on Windows 8 and Windows RT."
We don`t think it is referring to the software only, but to the hardware as well. Time will tell.
