Windows RT licenses reportedly costing $85, sends OEMS hunting down the back of the couch

Windows RT, which we’re obliged to remind you is the version that runs on ARM hardware, will reportedly cost between $80 and $95 for OEMs to license. Whilst at Computex, VR-Zone asked various companies the cost differences between building Android slates (which Google offers for free) and Microsoft’s latest variant. The anonymous enterprises responded with figures between $80 and $95 — averaging out at $85. If true, then Metro-powered tablets will cost several hundred dollars more than their Android-running rivals — which would certainly hamper its entry into the market.
