Windows RT tablets continue to flop as Lenovo drops IdeaPad Yoga 11

Windows seems not to be able to gain any traction with its RT-based tablets. Today, we learned that Lenovo has dropped the Windows RT-based IdeaPad Yoga 11 from its lineup. Despite Microsoft including Office apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and One Note for free on RT devices, the tablet's lack of legacy desktop application support as well as Outlook appear to have doomed the operating system from its inception.

Unfortunately, this may be one of the final nails in the coffin for Surface RT as its rapidly aging NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and a booming Android tablet market appear to be working together to put the tablet in the grave. This move comes after Microsoft sliced the prices on its own Surface RT tablets by $150 across-the-board.
