New entry-level price is under $300

Microsoft bet big on Windows RT as a tablet operating system for devices running ARM processors. So far, that bet hasn't really paid off with consumers staying far away from Windows RT devices. Some major computer manufacturers have abandoned their plans to launch Windows RT tablets while others have admitted disappointment in demand.

One Dell executive admitted in April that demand for Windows RT tablets has been disappointing. As a result, Dell has announced a significant price cut on its XPS 10 Windows RT tablet. The new entry-level price for the tablet has been slashed $299.99 -- before the price cut, the entry-level tablet went for $449.

The XPS 10 includes a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S 4 processor, a 10.1-inch screen (1366x768), and a 28 watt-hour battery. The large battery promises up to 10 hours of use per charge and the tablet has front and rear cameras along with 32 GB of storage.

A memory card slot is included for storage expansion and the tablet can be optioned with a removable keyboard dock. The entry-level $299.99 price point does not include the case or keyboard dock accessories. For $329.98, you can get the tablet and a case. If you want the tablet and the keyboard dock it will cost you $349.99.

The tablet with the keyboard dock and integrated 4G LTE capability on the AT&T network is now available for $499.99.
 
It's very interesting that the fully loaded LTE equipped tablet with the keyboard docking station is now only $50 more than the entry-level tablet used to be. The real question is will the new price points spur sales.
