    Samsung has confirmed to German tech news site Heise that it no longer plans to offer its Windows RT tablet, the ATIV Tab, in Germany and some "other European countries." The decision was reportedly made after the Korean conglomerate surveyed retailers and found there was little demand for Samsung Windows RT products. Today's news echoes Samsung's decision to not offer the Ativ Tab in the US. It made that call citing customer confusion over what Windows RT is, claiming that limited consumer interest in the OS made the cost of educating potential users too high. We've reached out to Samsung to confirm Heise's report, as well as to clarify which countries it is pulling out of. (source: The Verge)
    Strange that Samsung pulls out due to a lack of consumer interest while Microsoft plans to expand the availability of their tablet.

    This move isn't totally unexpected. It'll take a core base to get the ball rolling for acceptance IMO. If and when that happens, it'll be an attractive option. Right now its still looking to find its footing. I'll get there.

    Samsung is fully entrenched in Android. They can't bother with anything else.

    I didn't know there was an RT "race" to begin with.
