    The surface will have the high end RT tablet segment locked up. There is almost nothing the OEM's can do to change that. So I think at least one should shoot for mod-low end with their first device. Go for a smaller screen, leave off bells and whistles like the rear camera, NFC, cellular connection, etc. Make a 7-8" tablet with respectable base specs, an okay to good screen, and a good looking design. Price it at $300-400. I know there will be a bigger market for higher end devices, but everyone else is going to target that market with their first device. S if you are the first manufacturer to target the mid-range ultra portable market, you will have that market to yourself the whole holiday season since ms isn't opening the floodgates until 2013.
