Microsoft Surface Only $199?

According to Tablet Dudes, it appears that on October 26th, Microsoft will release their answer to the iPad at a very competitive price...only $199. When the Amazon Kindle Fire launched 9 months ago, a Kindle Fire teardown revealed that Amazon was losing money a few bucks on each one sold, relying on app purchases to make the Kindle Fire profitable overall.

Microsoft previously gave away IE along with Windows to attack the competition and may be willing to do the same with the Microsoft Surface. I could see a $199 tablet price with a high profit margin keyboard accessory running $79 more to bring Microsoft to a break-even price.
