Windows RT has had a rough year. It launched alongside Windows 8 late last October, but hasn’t exactly fared well in both sales and reception. It’s been tough to sell to consumers with the Surface RT being considered a flop by many and other OEMs not doing any better. Asus is now joining the growing list of OEMs who aren’t going to be working on Windows RT in the near future.
Another blow to Microsoft and their plans with ARM processors. Windows RT is reportedly not being considered in any future products from Asus. The CEO of Asus, Jerry Shen, confirmed today that they will no longer product tablets running Windows RT. Here’s what he had to say in an earnings call:
“It's not only our opinion; the industry sentiment is also that Windows RT has not been successful.”
There you have it. It seems at this rate the only new Windows RT device you’ll be likely getting in the future is the Surface RT from Microsoft or Lenovo.
What do you guys think of Windows RTs future with OEMs like Asus and Acer stating no plans to build further devices?
