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.

Come on. Rooting an Android device is as complicated as doing a file-transfer on Windows Phone.

I rooted dozend of Android devices and never bricked one. Granted I have experience but clicking a few times the next Button isn't that difficult. The whole rooting process is simple, straith forward and like replacing the vendor's Android version with CM doesn't require hacking-skills. The two biggest problems are the need for another computer and the lose of warranty.

And if something does happen? I am shit out of luck with no phone. Sorry, but I can't risk that.

If something goes wrong you can restore the original vendors image. But yes, there is always those 0.% left that your phone is dead. If you like to be 100% you shouldn't carry around your phone. Way more % lose there phone by dropping it off accidental somewhere, throwing it into water, run across a thief or burn there device in a microwave then bricking it cause of rooting. Put your device into a safe and that safe into another safe and you have 99.9% security.
