Why won’t Samsung release lots and lots of Windows RT tablets in the United States? Because consumers don’t know what Windows RT is. Plus it sucks. Plus it would take tons of marketing dollars to educate them. On top of all of that, people want Windows 8, not a watered-down version of it. In an interview with CNET, Samsung executive Mike Abary stated that, “When we did some tests and studies on how we could go to market with a Windows RT device, we determined there was a lot of heavy lifting we still needed to do to educate the customer on what Windows RT was,” and furthermore, “We didn’t necessarily attain the price point that we hoped to attain,”
Having reviewed a Samsung Windows RT tablet, I can agree that it’s not ready, or even remotely sensible.
