SmartAboutThings writes: Right now, there are already plenty of cheap and good Windows 8 tablets, with prices between $200 and $300, but it seems that even cheaper slates are on their way. According to a recent report, a not so popular Chinese company, called Emdoor, could be the first one to release full Windows 8 tablets under $100. Shortly after the Build 2014 event, Intel has announced at the IDF conference that they are going to use their low-end Baytrail solution for Windows tablets at the $99 pricetag. Hermann Eul, a top executive at Intel, said Windows tablets could cost only $99 by lining up low-cost processor models up with the removal of Windows licensing costs. He also said that there are already more than 90 tablet designs coming to the market, with prices ranging from below $100 to $500.
