DigiTimes' sources have had their ears close to the ground and heard the rumblings that Microsoft's newly-announced Surface tablet production will be outsourced to Pegatron Technology, but there's not a firm estimate for order numbers, yet.
These same sources have also made an estimation on end-market pricing of the Windows 8 Pro-based Surface tablet, specced with Intel's Ivy Bridge-based processor to be at least, or above, US$799. The Windows RT-based model that sports NVIDIA's 4-PLUS-1 Tegra 3 SoC will be priced above US$599.
The sources continued, saying that the industrial design of Surface will attract customers in the enterprise market, which is great for Microsoft's sales, but the high prices will push them against a wall when it comes to the bigger consumer market.
