Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said today that devices  such as Microsoft's Surface RT and Asus Vivo Tab RT aren't selling very well. "Windows RT is disappointing to us because we expected to have sold more than we did," Huang said. "Everybody expected to have sold more than we did."

 

"Is Windows RT important to Microsoft? Is ARM important to Microsoft? I can't believe the answer could be 'I'm not sure.' It's too important ... because there are a large number of devices. ... They need to find a way to get into that ecosystem," Huang said.

The price isn't really there for a tablet. Why pay $500-$600 for a tablet when I could get a better laptop for that price. Yes it's slightly more portable but you're trading portability for not being able to use your normal applications.

I never recomend Surface RT to anyone. Either buy Surface Pro or buy an Android tablet. ;)
