Microsoft Marks Down Windows Tablets, Kicks in Free Office

Microsoft is having a fire sale of sorts for OEM distributors of smaller sized tablets, discounting the licensing fee and throwing in Office to boot, in hopes of sparking a fire under consumer sales. The reduction in price to OEM’s wasn’t disclosed, but it is hoped that the price cuts will be passed on down to consumers.

The bundles will also be included in new devices running Windows 8.1, the update for both Windows 8 and Windows RT that Microsoft will launch later this year.
