Microsoft’s Surface will supposedly retail for $199 at launch?

Engadget is reporting that Microsoft’s RT version of the Surface Tablet will supposedly retail for $199 when it comes out next month. The price supposedly comes from a reliable source, and if it’s true, it places the Surface tablet at a unique position to compete with Google’s Nexus 7, which is also priced at $199 in the US. If the rumored low price point is true, it means that Microsoft is going to take a hit when it starts churning out these tablets, as there’s no way to make a bunch of profit at that low of a price point.
