    Microsofts new tablet with intc inside

    I think the private label path is the only one left considering the license costs of $85 (Win RT) to $100 (Win 8).

    No OEM can make money with that type of licensing fee and still be able to market the device at a competitive price.

    But Microsoft may be shooting itself in the foot with its private label pushing its OEMs to consider Android (and probably Tizen later on) for Tablets and other low-end devices. Android is well established in its own right and can create real problems for Microsoft even in the short-term if there is an exodus of OEMs for Tablet type of devices.
