Windows RT License Cost

Horace Dediu posted a photo to Twitter of this China Post story which claims that Windows RT licenses cost between $90 and $100. If that’s true, it’s going to be very, very difficult for third parties to compete with the $499 Microsoft Surface. Third parties are in a tight spot when deciding between a very expensive Windows license which will make a more desirable tablet, and a free Android license for a tablet that few will buy.
