Samsung cancels plans for Windows RT device

Mike Abary, the head of Samsung’s PC and tablet business in the U.S., tells CNET that the company will not be releasing its Windows RT device in the U.S. because retail partners don’t see strong demand and because the value proposition for Windows RT isn’t clear to consumers.

Ouch.

    “and because the value proposition for Windows RT isn’t clear to consumers.”

    I thought we were just supposed to buy it because of the choreographed dance and clicking covers?

    Microsoft made the mistake by themselves by releasing 2 unclearly-differentiated Windows 8′s. If they are betting on releasing the same OS for Mobile & Desktop it SHOULD be the SAME OS. Don’t lie or confuse the customer!

    Seems like a smart decision. I’m not surprised that Samsung is profitable these days.
