Not wanting to be outdone by Apple, Microsoft is reportedly planning to release a low-cost Surface tablet later this year. Said to measure 10 inches and with a price tag of around $400, the budget Surface will retain the familiar kickstand found on its Pro sibling, and will compete directly with the iPad.

Microsoft's iPad killer? Budget Surface tablet said to be in the works
