    Microsoft to offer discount on Windows 8 OEM prices

    Search for the title and you can find the press release.

    A couple of quotes in the release that really stood out:
    -"The discount will be available beginning April-May"
    -"Windows 8 has fallen short of expectations in driving demand mainly because Windows 8 notebooks and tablets are too expensive"

    It's only speculation but these details do align with UNXL's upcoming announcement of a ecosystem partner. Reed said it might be sooner so I wonder if MSFT isn't beginning to show their hand? Anyone else see this and have similar thoughts?

    • From my understanding, the price cuts are for form factors of 10in and less. That's not the market that UNXL is playing in at this time. So specifically, these price cuts don't spur Unixel product sales. But the news definitely suggests that wider adoption of touch panels is something that MSFT is very keen to promote - and this particular MSFT intent makes UNXL an attactive partner for larger form touch panels.
