    Yep, I mentioned this in another thread yesterday(?). Samsung canceled because of "modest demand" for the window$-based product. :laugh:

    It'll be interesting to see if any other manufacturers back out on their RT tablets. Could be bad for Micro$oft

    I didn't really see a place in the market for the RT tablets anyway. That's a crowded space with Android and Apple. The full Windows 8 tablets have that market to themselves for now. Let's see if they can do anything with it.

    I think this is going to be Microsoft's watershed....and probably for the worse.

    To be totally frank, I've not been particularly impressed by Micro$oft in recent months anyway...

    What I encountered, is that you apparently can't buy Windows in China. You can only get genuine Windows, if it comes with a new PC.
