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.

I can't exactly speak for him, but who knows--maybe there really *is* no value in a Windows-based tablet for him? Just because something is on the market being sold doesn't mean it is automatically of value to everyone... people have different needs. Buying decisions aren't necessarily dictated by maturity. Although a lot of people buy based purely on impulse and marketing hype without a second of actual research, which in my opinion is about the worst thing anyone can do... but the companies love it.

But he never stated that he was talking about him, it was written like he meant that there's no value in a Windows-based tablet in general. The thing is, a Windows 8 - tablet can do more-or-less all the same thing an Android - or an iOS - one can -- atleast when the amount of available software catches up -- so in general there's either value in all of them or none of them. The difference in value then mostly boils down to hardware-features, with a cheap tablet being the optimal point for some and an expensive one being the optimal point for others.

It seems majority agrees with him and not you since majorty doesn't buy a windows phone or tablet but Android and iOS. Taken that into account I think his opinion is closer to the majority of customers (>95% that is) then your opinion is.
