Asus Windows RT Tablets Cancelled

Windows RT is quickly becoming the kid in high school who never showered and whom no one wanted to sit with in the cafeteria. The Wall Street Journal reports that Asus has officially cancelled all of its plans to make Windows RT tablets because no devices based on the operating system have sold well. Asus is just the latest Windows OEM to give Windows RT the cold shoulder as HTC had to cancel plans to release a Windows RT tablet earlier this year and Acer has said that it’s unsure if it will ever release another Windows RT tablet again. Despite apathy from both OEMs and consumers, however, Microsoft has vowed to keep plugging away with Windows RT until it’s successful.
