Some units still available through resellers
Microsoft has been having a rough time with its fledgling Windows RT operating system. Devices using the tablet-centric operating system, have sold poorly since the operating system was introduced last year. The flagship tablet running the operating system from Microsoft, Surface RT, recently received a
significant price cut
in an effort to spur sales.
Another Windows RT licensee, Lenovo, recently removed the Yoga 11 hybrid tablet that runs Windows RT from its online lineup. Some analysts are seeing Lenovo's move as another sign that computer makers in general are beginning to abandon the Windows RT operating system
Lenovo posted a page on its website that said the Yoga 11 hybrid tablet is no longer available directly from Lenovo, but people interested in the device "may still buy this product from a Lenovo retailer or reseller."
Back in May, a version of the Yoga 11 tablet called the
running an Intel Core processor launched. That version of the tablet runs the full-blown Windows 8 operating system.
Analyst Jack Gold from J. Gold Associates said, "I think you’ll see most vendors of RT tablets move in the same direction as Lenovo. RT tablets have not been selling well at all."
"New Intel chips should help get the battery/power down so vendors can achieve parity with iPads and other ARM tablets," he continued.
