No U.S. launch coming for the Samsung ATIV Tab Windows RT tablet
If you were looking to buy the Samsung ATIV Tab Windows RT tablet in the U.S., you had better make other plans. The Korean based manufacturer has decided not to offer the tablet in the U.S. Samsung Senior VP Mike Abary said that the company would have had to do some heavy lifting to explain to U.S. consumers about Windows RT and the difference between the OS and Windows 8. According to Abary, this would have required a lot of money. Additionally, Samsung said it received only a "modest feedback" from its retail partners about how successful the tablet would be in the States.

Abary also noted that the Samsung could not produce the tablet to sell at the price point it wanted to. The executive said that this wasn't an issue with Microsoft, but was purely the result of how Samsung built the tablet. The Korean based tech titan said it still has an interest in Windows RT and will monitor how the market responds to current models.
