Pricing rumored to be on par with ARM tablets and Intel-class Ultrabooks.

Microsoft is hoping that its recently announced Surface tablet will make waves when it launches, but one thing it didn’t announce was the price.

But according to a listing on a Swedish website, the Surface tablet could start from a little over $1,000, with the most expensive being the Windows 8 Pro 64GB tablet, sitting in at around $2,100.

Microsoft earlier stated that pricing for the Surface tablet would be along the lines of current-gen ARM tablets or Intel Ultrabooks, and have reiterated that correct pricing information will be available closer to launch. This would put the Surface tablet just out of the pricing bracket of say the iPad, but it remains to be seen if Microsoft will indeed be able to price the Surface tablet competitively closer to launch.
