    Acer, Levono all exited the RT market after trying , Hp do not even want to touch it, Msft suffered massive loses !

    This is very important considering Msft just made a billion dollar loss in this one single product and if Nokia make that mistake, we will all be done for . Every single manufacturer, and we mean every single manufacturer tried and completely 100 % gave up. Every single one. Levono was the last and their online stop last month I think . Mircosoft already wrote down almost 1 billion. Remember it is exactly the same device , 1 billion dollar losses. I repeat, that is almost two third the price we paid for Nokia Simens Network. Even after massive cut in prices, the RT is still not selling well.

    We strongly believe in Nokia but I do not want the worst to land on it like a billion dollar loses. This is grave and serious . I am a strong believer of 520 and 625. But this is very important, Nokia must not built up a large inventory on this because this will likely be a massive failure, what can Nokia do so differently that power houses like Acer, Levono and even the massive Microsoft cannot.

      Manufacturers said they are abandoning tablets using the ARM-based version of the Windows 8 operating system.

      FURTHERMORE ..... ASUS will still develop window RT... Shen said his company would continue to make Windows 8 devices using Intel Relevant Products/Services microprocessors, which provide the kind of backward compatibility with the vast inventory of Windows software that RT tablets did not have.

      There is INCOMPATIBILITY issue!!!!!!!

      But this tiMe, reports are revealing a QUAD core ARM-based Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 32 GB of built-in storage with W8.1. There is a chance that most of the incompatibility had been resolved.

      Also getting some words that surface RT tablet durability is in question by the Enterprise...RT is a name already established & marketed...NOKIA can capitalized on that alone.....An RT Tablet produced & built by NOKIA may get acceptance with the ENTERPRISE

    • An RT tablet for Nokia would be a mistake.

      A "phablet", equipped with some unique features/innovations, could do well. In response to your noting the failed Acer, Lenovo, MSFT RT efforts, none of those companies know wireless like Nokia.

      I think Nokia doesn't view an RT as a "me too" opportunity to take iPad share. Instead, Nokia views an" RT tablet" format as a really large phone that has a big screen, internet, and room for a great camera, and room for who knows what else Nokia has developed...

      • There's always room for surprise. Suppose Nokia come out with a tablet that reads and keeps charge like a Kindle but has the flexibility of a Surface / iPad / Nexus tablet. And is a good phone too. Who knows what they're going to come up with. Maybe it will be like the Surface but just cheap and well made - and had phone capability. That could swing it too.

      • I respect your view and yes this is one area Nokia has an advantage , its vast R and D when it comes to wireless. Samsung has a Tab 7 with WiFi and that with 3G. Microsoft probably instructed Nokia t try out the 3G after the Surface failed. However I would seriously caution Nokia diving into a pool with no one inside it. If it is healthy , fine, but not at this state when things are just beginning to look good, but just beginning to.

        If Nokia has nothing else to offer that is another mater altogether, but it has so much to market, so much to offer, I am nothing against Phablet or even Tablets based on the real Window, lots of proven success to leverage from. but this RT thing is highly experimental and dangerous. So I just hope Nokia, tread carefully, very carefully.
