Microsoft Said to Cut Windows for Tablet Prices

Microsoft Corp. is cutting the price of its Windows software for small tablets, seeking to shore up foundering efforts to combat Apple Inc. in the mobile-computing market, people with knowledge of the matter said.

Microsoft is using the changes to try and get more manufacturers to adopt Windows RT, a version of its flagship software for tablets, said the people, who asked not to be identified because pricing is confidential. The price cuts affect Windows RT for small-sized tablets.
