Samsung recently launched their first Windows RT based tablet,
the Samsung ATIV Tab which has been available in Europe, and we though
we also be headed to the US, although now it would appear that the
device will not be available in the US.
Cnet recently spoke to
Mike Abary, who is the head of Samsung’s tablet business in the United
States, and he apparently told Cnet that Samsung will not be launching
their Windows RT based tablets in the US.
Samsung have decided not to launch their Windows RT based tablets in
the US as they have only been met with moderate demand, and they would
have to put in a large investment to inform customers about the benefits
of Windows RT.
Samsung obviously has a great market in the US
with its range of Android devices, which are some of the most popular
smartphones and tablets, so obviously they intend to concentrate on
those devices instead of devices running Windows RT.
