Toshiba says adios to Windows RT

Industry powerhouse Toshiba is respectfully declining the opportunity to sell computers and tablets that will run Windows RT. They will instead be focusing on making devices that run on Intel processors.

“Toshiba has decided not to introduce Windows RT models due to delayed components that would make a timely launch impossible,” Eric Paulsen, a U.S-based spokesman, said in their statement. “For the time being, Toshiba will focus on bringing Windows 8 products to market. We will continue to look into the possibility of Windows RT products in the future while monitoring market conditions.”

Now the BS official reason that Toshiba is giving for bailing is a “delay in getting components”.

We’ll have to see where this story goes over the next couple of days and what the real reason is. The truth always gets revealed…

    Lets hope this is not the beginning of a much bigger shift. One where OEM’s turn their back on Microsoft. I think Microsoft is pulling on some very dangerous strings with Windows 8 and could potentially damage the market.
