Earlier today Microsoft posted the above info to their online store which appears show the pricing for the Surface RT Tablet with and without the touch cover.

Pricing starts at $499 for the entry level 32gb without a touch cover. If you want the touch cover its $599 and the 64gb with touch cover is $699.


These prices would translate roughly to around £370, £445 and £519 respectively based on the current exchange rate and 20% VAT. For comparison at time of writing the entry level Nexus 7 is £159  and the iPad is £329, although neither of those gets you 32gb of storage.
