Windows "Taiwanese computer maker Acer is putting off the launch of tablets using Microsoft's new Windows RT operating system to give itself time to see how Microsoft's own Surface tablet fares. The world's No. 4 PC vendor by shipments initially planned to roll out Windows RT tablets based on ARM chips early next year. However, the launch of Microsoft's tablet last week and the mixed reviews it has drawn has prompted Acer to wait and see until at least the second quarter of 2013." Whatever the reason, this doesn't send a very promising message about Windows RT. Or, not entirely unlikely, Acer and other OEMs just can't measure up to Surface RT.

Fujitsui lifebooks are mostly targeted at medical workers and engineers. It's a low volume / pay high because you have cash strategy.

But yea Microsoft should have moved faster on tablets and touchscreen phones for consumers. They sat on their hands and still seem unable to accept the reality of their situation.
