Windows 8 Update: Microsoft exec says for many their first PC will be a phone

Tim Greene | Sept. 18, 2013
Plus a 70-inch Windows 8 tablet, even a retired Ballmer will easily make the Forbes 400 of world's wealthiest.

No word on how much it costs.

More Surface deals
On the heels of Microsoft reducing the price of its Surface RT and Surface Pro, tablets deals have popped up on eBay advertising a continuation of the discounts.

With the announcement of Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets set for next week, it seems parties with oversized inventories are looking to unload them while they can.

Microsoft itself has knocked $100 off the price of Surface Pros to a base price of $799 and cut Surface RT's price $150 to $349.Dump your iPad please!

Microsoft is offering a Microsoft Store gift card worth at least $200 for people trading in an iPad 2, 3 or 4. For those looking for a new tablet, the company notes the new base prices of the Surface RT and the Surface Pro. Microsoft calls moving from an iPad to a Surface an upgrade.

The offer expires Oct. 27, which may be in time for customers to consider trading in their iPads and buying a Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2, which might be out by then but Microsoft hasn't said yet for sure.

The Microsoft site promoting the offer doesn't say how the company decides how much an iPad is worth or what the maximum offer is.
