Microsoft is about to have a 100% market share on Windows RT tablets. As Business Insider notes, Dell has stopped manufacturing its Windows RT-based XPS 10 device and has not announced any plans to release any further RT tablets in the future. By removing the XPS 10 from the market, Dell has followed Samsung, Lenovo, HTC, Asus and Acer this year as companies that have either cancelled their planned Windows RT tablets or have discontinued their Windows RT tablets without showing any intention of making more in the future. This leaves only one company left making hardware for Windows RT and it happens to be Microsoft, which earlier this week unveiled its RT-based Surface 2 tablet.
