They're trying to get rid of the dang things. Saw a best buy commercial the other night. I shook my head as they made the RT tablets look so great when all they were doing is trying to get rid of them.
They really overcooked inventory by millions of units which they now have to get rid of. Don't know what makes them think that an Snapdragon S800 follow-up still without legacy software support will fare any better but that's apparently what's next. Should be chewed up in a Bay Trail/Haswell sandwich but MSFT have trouble learning what's a bad idea until the market spells it out to them a few times ;-).
"Here’s a thought: At $250, Microsoft is selling a full tablet computer and keyboard that contains Microsoft Office for less coin than it costs to buy Office by itself in certain SKUs. Far, far less, in fact."
[The RT failure was clearly part of the reason for the huge drop in ARM's stock price. It began and ended the ARM incursion into PCs...]
