  • The future of Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows RT is starting to look a little shaky. Not only have Surface RT sales underwhelmed, Samsung has decided not to sell its RT tablets in the U.S. The electronics giant says educating U.S. consumers on RT would require "heavy lifting," and that retail partners have indicated RT demand is modest. One could also point out RT systems, which sport ARM-based (ARMH) CPUs from the likes of QCOM and NVDA, don't support older Windows apps, and that Intel and AMD have been busy developing tablet-friendly CPUs for Windows 8 Pro gear. [View news story]
    I like the Surface and I have one. If Ballmer priced Surface at $200~$300, they would have sold out. They missed the price point to make a big wave. They took a hit on every Xbox they sold for the first year to get market share. Where is the old cut-throat MSFT? Also the Surface/Windows RT ads are awful.
    Hey MSFT the WinRT killer app is Office. How about saying that in the ads??? Or maybe it has an USB port or Memory slot. I think I will buy a Surface instead of IPad because I saw someone spin one their finger??? Really???
