Windows Well, this can't be a good sign. Samsung has told CNET that the company will not be launching its Windows RT tablet in the United States, citing a lack of demand and consumer confusion. After I spent an afternoon in my country's largest electronics retailer, it's hard not to agree with Samsung.

Given the fact that MS can ammortize its investments with WP8 anyway, the move can even be rationalized.


Sure, I can't wait to see it explained how spending half a billion on advertising surface and angering developers can be rationalized.

e.g. by showing OEMS how serious MS is about the change Win8 introduces. Also, x86 version of Surface will ride this wave too.

Wait...so you think Surface x86 is going to be a hit? You really think the masses are going to run out for a $900 64gb tablet that requires a $100 keyboard to use Office without fingers?
