Microsoft tries to buy the market for tablets

Microsoft has announced a deal where it will get owners of the Apple iPad a minimum $200 gift card to use towards a new Surface RT tablet or other product from a Microsoft Store. There are some catches the offer, the iPad has to be in working condition, non-password-protected, and must include its power cord.

Presumably, it has to be working and not cracked as well. Microsoft will give you at least $200 for your iPad 2, 3, or 4. The offer is good through September 5 until October 27.

The offer of at least $200 certainly won't get you into a new Surface tablet without laying out some cash. The Surface RT starts at $349 and the Surface Probe starts at $799.

Earlier this week, we heard a rumor that Apple’s supposed iPad Pro is not going to be the full-sized 13-inch screen that we’d been hearing about for nearly two years, but would actually be more akin to Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3, which measures 12.2 inches. Only a short time later, new rumors suggest that Microsoft is actually trying to out-size Apple’s rumored 12.9-inch tablet with its own 13 or 14-inch Surface Pro. Is there a suc ...
