Microsoft Rumored to Cut Windows 8 RT Prices

Microsoft's Windows 8 RT, Microsoft iOS, is not gaining the adoption from hardware makers as Microsoft like to see. To get more players to adopt RT instead of pumping out Android tablets, Microsoft is lowering the RT license fee says a report on Bloomberg.

Here is what Microsoft should have done. Give hardware makers Windows 8 RT for free for 2 years and then start charging license fees. This would have gotten Microsoft a big foot in the door of the tablet market dominated by Apple and Google. Microsoft's approach was though to charge too much for RT from the get-go. There are only four other Windows 8 RT tablet on the market besides the Microsoft Surface.

Today at the Computex 2013 a lot of tablets have been announced, but I could not find a Windows 8 RT tablet. Acer Chairman J.T. Wang was even saying at the show that the Microsoft Windows RT OS won't be so influential anymore, and the firm has not yet decided if it will launch an RT tablet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
