    Samsung confirms no Windows RT tablets for US


    The company's decision is based in part upon feedback from retail partners, which suggested that such a product would be only modestly successful in the marketplace. Samsung also pointed to the lack of education about Windows RT, and suggested that it would require too much of an investment to properly inform consumers of the differences between it and Windows 8.

    Message hopefully buried with the haters.

    People joke around and say that Windows XP is (eXPired). I'm going to say that Windows RT is (ReTired).

    Hi there
    very true

    same as we say for DAB Radio (Dead And Buried) - old fashioned FM is still far better (especially in a car) and decent portable Internet radios really do make DAB obsolete --even though the DAB technology has only really just got off the ground --shows all new stuff doesn't merit making it to mainstream.

    We used to call Windows XP Windows eXPensive while Windows NT was known as Windows NeanderThal or Windows No Thanks.

    However when all else fails people I suppose can always try this version on their shiny new Samsung tablets !!!

    Cheers

    I think what's interesting here is that Samsung is a major player in the tablet market and getting bigger: Samsung tablet sales leap 325% as Apple iPad market share falls, yet it's decided not to embark on the Windows RT space. I don't think it would have made such a decision lightly.
