• ASUS Windows 8 tablet pricing revealed in leaked holiday roadmap

    Leaked information published today by ZDNet reveals that a trio of Asus touch-screen devices will cost anywhere from $599 to $1,299. According to ZDNet, this leaked slide, marked confidential, contains ďAsusí holiday roadmap", a trio of Windows 8 tablets on deck for the holidays, but the pricing is so high---$599 to $1,299 for a hybrid---that it's going to be nearly impossible to compete in the marketplace.

    The prices for three incoming ASUS Windows 8 tablets have been leaked today, as part of the companyís holiday roadmap. As you can see from the image above, which was secured by the folks at ZDNet, the prices are pretty high, with the ASUS Vivo Tab RT coming in at $599. Its big brother, which is running Windows 8 instead of Windows RT, will set you back $799, and if you want the dock for either tablet, youíll have to shell out an additional $199.

    The ASUS Taichi convertible tablet is going to cost you even more, as that has been stuck with a price tag of $1,299. ZDNet says that the roadmap also details a number of other machines that arenít pictured in the image above, including a laptop that is priced at $549 and the next generation Transformer, which comes in at a whopping $1,399. Keep in mind that these prices may change by the time these machines actually hit shelves, but if these are the prices ASUS has decided on, then itís going to have some difficulties finding an audience.

    Thatís especially true when there are other tablets out there available for much less. Why ASUS is pricing these tablets so high when it got the price of the Nexus 7 so right is entirely beyond us (though, to be fair, that may have been more Googleís doing), and we doubt that people are going to be jumping up and down for these products after seeing their prices. Still, as is usually the case, we canít say for sure until itís been confirmed, so maybe these products will launch with price tags that are a little easier to swallow. Stay tuned.
