HTC , The Problem Is Not The Hardware. It’s The Monopolist’s Software.

“HTC has canceled its larger, 12-inch Windows RT tablet over concerns that overall demand for large-format tablets has been weak and that the cost to build such a device would have made its sticker price too expensive for today’s market.”

A 7 inch tablet with that other OS still won’t match the price/performance of */Linux on ARM. To compete, you have to sell Android/Linux or GNU/Linux on your products. Check out ASUS… They even sell gadgets with keyboards running Android/Linux.

    man, android is a hodge podge of an idea, google should have used their own desktop environment coded in c. then people would have been able to use all the compilers and interpretors as they are on the desktop with mobiles and tablets. How cool would it have been to code your project on the way to work on the train or bus? Man that is the future not android. But android is a start to get the rest motivated.

    The M$ pimps cannot push their drugs anymore, the OEM’s are waking up to the fact that they do not need Windows to make money in the market.

    Samsung, with their plethora of Android devices is evident enough. The big players, instead of innovating further, they become jealous and envious and would rather whine to the court system, lodge patent suits and cry that they stole our stuff.

    M$ / Apple, either step up your game, or STFU.
