    Lacks confidence in watered down OS

    A report on German website MobileGeeks Samsung is to stop selling its ATIV Tablet in Germany and other parts of Europe. The ATIV runs on the Window RT operating system which, apparently Samsung lacks confidence in due to its stripped down nature.

    After interviewing various retailers Samsung concluded that the device did not present the market opportunity they were hoping for and the expense in educating consumers too great. Price was also a concern and Samsung couldn't get it low enough to trigger demand.
