We recently heard that Microsoft had stopped making their Surface 2 tablet, and now the company has confirmed that they are no longer making any more Windows RT devices.
When Windows RT was launched a number of manufacturers made the tablets, although Microsoft has been the only one offering a Windows RT device for some time, the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.
Microsoft has now confirmed to The Verge that they are no longer making the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, which is the last RT based device that was being produced, you can see a statement from Microsoft below.
“We are no longer manufacturing Nokia Lumia 2520; however, those still eager to buy Nokia Lumia 2520 should visit Microsoft Retail Stores, MicrosoftStore.com, third-party retailers and resellers for the latest availability.”
That means that there are now no more Windows RT devices being produced, so Microsoft have effectively killed off Windows RT.
The company will be launching their next major OS, Windows 10 shortly, which is designed to unify tablets, smartphones, PCs and their Xbox console.
