Tablets running Microsoft's Windows 8 RT platform will be aggressively priced.
Tech giant Lenovo claimed that devices running Windows 8 RT will cost $200 to $300 less than Windows 8 Pro tablets.
"RT will play in consumer and retail at very aggressive price points," David Schmoock, head of Lenovo North America, told Bloomberg.
"It will do well but it's going to be more of a consumer price point play to begin with."
Windows 8 Pro tablets are expected to cost $600-$700, Schmoock said.
Windows 8 Pro is backwards-compatible with legacy Windows applications and crafted for x86 processors. Windows RT, on the other hand, is not backwards-compatible and is made with power-sipping ARM chips in mind.
The news comes just a few weeks after reports claimed that the RT version of Microsoft's Surface tablet will cost just $199.
