Microsoft is said to be working on a cheap Surface tablet to compete with the iPad

Not wanting to be outdone by Apple, Microsoft is reportedly planning to release a low-cost Surface tablet later this year. Said to measure 10 inches and with a price tag of around $400, the budget Surface will retain the familiar kickstand found on its Pro sibling, and will compete directly with the iPad. This is not a re-run of the Surface RT, as full-blown Windows will be supported.
