According to numerous media reports, Samsung is going to stop selling Windows RT based ATIV tablets in Germany and a number of other countries. Despite the fact that Samsung hasn’t made any official announcement yet, the move was largely unsurprising for the industry experts. The company decided not to sell the ATIV Tab in the American market, because it was deemed that it couldn’t stand much of a chance against Apple and Android tablets. Nevertheless, what’s not good enough for the American users is usually neither good enough for their European fellows.
If you check one of the major European price search engines for ATIV Tab listings, you will found dozens of them – from Poland through Germany to Blighty. Nevertheless, although it is available, you can’t be sure that it’s finding many takers. For example, most German and Austrian retailers offer it for around €600, while other parts of Europe can only be able to buy it for €700. As for the United Kingdom, the ATIV Tab can be found for £499, after a £50 discount.
Actually, the ATIV Tab is not such a bad piece of kit. It received a number of quite good professional and consumer reviews, but is still overpriced. In fact, it costs almost as much as entry level SKUs of the company’s ATIV Smart PC featuring an Atom CPU and running Windows 8.
The rumors don’t bode well for Microsoft’s fledgling tablet OS. Currently, just 3 Windows RT tablets are available in the region: Microsoft’s Surface RT, the Asus VivoTab RT TF600, Dell’s XPS 10, aside from the ill-fated ATIV Tab from Samsung. Most of these devices retail in the €550 to €700 range, which means that they cost almost as much as an iPad 4 and significantly more than high-end Android tablets.
