After Acer taking a wait-and-see approach with a Windows RT tablet to see if there is room for it at all against Microsoft's own Surface, now Asus is giving up, lowering the price of its VivoTab RT, and even throwing in a free keyboard dock in the process...

And very soon Surface will be KO by Nexus 10, the best 10" tablet in the market.

N10 will become a successful product but I don't see any reason it slowing down surface sells. And pro is on the way to introduce some radical change.

I love android buddy but Windows even the RT version is almost a full-blown OS and it shard to compete with the functionality factor Windows Tbas bring....I mean of course even I'll be getting a nexus 10 but its no computer

You obviously don't know anything about consumerism but everything about fanboyism... Consumers like having choices. TechGeeks would definitely get both. And fanboys like you will stay with what you know and have.

If manufacturers "throw in the towel" this reduces choices - not good for us the consumer. May also not be good for ms. Fewer choices may make it harder for win rt to get enough market share. I like that ms is making a tablet, but i dont luke the fact it is causing other great brands to not bother trying to compete :(

If MS didnt charge them $85 per tablet for Windows RT and Office software, Im sure other manufacturers would be more willing to hop on board.
MS shouldnt charge more than $30 for this, honestly.
