When it comes to Samsung and Windows-based smartphones/tablets, I reckon even “semi-committed” is a bit of a stretch.
The Windows 8 RT-rockin’ Samsung ATIV Tab, for example, has only hit select territories to date, but we’re hearing that it’s being withdrawn from various European markets, including Germany.
That’s the word out of CeBIT, which is currently going down in Hanover, Germany. It’s the “world’s leading high-tech event”, don’t you know?
Having a scout around on Amazon, Expansys and Clove, it appears that the Samsung ATIV Tab is still available in the UK for now, but with a price tag circa £500 and Windows 8 RT on OS duties, it’s no wonder sales are low.
It’s thought that Samsung’s retreat applies only to Windows 8 RT. If you fancy full-fat Windows 8 Pro, you can always grab the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro for, like, £1,000. Beautiful.
