Probably not. Windows RT makes no sense - especially when most people buying a Windows tablet expect it to run Windows app, but Surface Pro costs too much and has **** battery life.

I think it had a chance, but that ship may have sailed. It may have been too hyped for its own good and definitely too pricey.

True that. Couldn't have said it better myself.

I have Friends who bought Surface RTs on Release day and was all excited and they couldn't Understand that it doesnt run Regular Windows apps.

 

"Its a Windows Tablet right?"
"Yes"

"So I can install X Software on it"

"No"

"Why?"
"Because its Windows RT"

"So its Windows."
"Not Really"
"wtf"

Coincidentally, Asus has been contracted to build the new Nexus tablet again :P

 

Woot woot! Rumors say it's the new Nexus 10.

 

But yeah I don't see Windows RT coming close to the likes of iOS or Android OS. Even when people can get the Surface RT for approximately $199 (as a student), there are too few apps in the Windows store to even consider the RT.

 

I'm pretty sure RT now stands for ReTreat.

Id honest rather buy Windows RT than Android...

I think it would depend on need for me, but the lack of apps kind of kills it for me. Sort of similar to WP tbh.

A lot of apps are now available on Windows RT and WP8. I think its more perception than reality.

The problem is that perception is key in a lot of cases. Especially when it comes to the success or failure of a product.

That, and hardware specs of Windows device. "Perceived resolution" of a Surface? Screw that, people want Retina displays :P
