Bluntly, the chairman says "the result was not very promising," when asked about RT-based device sales.
Windows RT runs a version of Windows 8 built for ARM processors, but the devices cannot use legacy Windows apps like Windows 8 Pro can, leaving options limited.
Moving forward, Shih says the company will focus on Windows Pro devices, along with their Intel processors. Shih noted what is very clear now; people still love to use classic Windows apps.
The company is not giving up on Windows, although Shih says he believes the 10-inch form factor is preferable to smaller 7 and 8-inch models.
