PSST! Where Can I Get a Grey-Market Ativ?
A pretty big reversal from Samsung:
I thoroughly enjoy using my Microsoft Surface RT and never even considered other RT devices. According to CNET, Samsung won't be bringing their Samsung Ativ Tab to the US due to demand not being as high as hoped and the amount of education Samsung believes they have to invest in to inform consumers about the benefits of Windows RT.
I'm not sure "benefits" is the right word here. Over the holidays, many RT units were returned by unhappy customers after they discovered that just because it says "Windows" in the name of the OS doesn't mean it can run Windows apps. Samsung might have discovered that educating consumers about Windows RT might have made making the sale more difficult.
