PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Bloomberg: "Microsoft, which has tightly controlled the number of ARM-based devices it is supporting at first to ensure quality, opted not to work with HTC after initial discussions with the company, said two people familiar with the matter. The world's largest software maker decided HTC didn't have the sales volume needed and had less tablet experience than some of the other vendors it could choose to work with for the first round of devices, the people said." HTC was the first company to build a Microsoft-powered smartphone. Now, they're not allowed to build Windows 8 tablets.

And once again I say, just because it's all roses for you doesn't mean it is for everyone. I would think the people who post here would have been immersed in technology long enough to accept that things aren't always 100% perfect.

This elitist "I haven't seen it so it never existed and you're lying" bullshit attitude is getting old, frankly.
