It may be a go-er....
....it may not. But whatever happens, it'll be strong enough to contain tonnes of water and a couple of humpedback whales....
Never mind the RT....
...they need to address the eye-watering cost of the Pro as well. I went to have a look at one with a view to a later-in-the-year purchase, £799 is just too rich for my blood - especially with the, to my thick-thumbed-hand, touch keyboard. Drop it by at least £200 and chuck in the physically better keyboard FoC, then you might start getting more interest. Sad about the RT not being better than it is. Best kill it off now and nudge Nokia into doing a WP8 Phablet instead methinks....
You could protest if you wish, but would the result of a riot in Glasgow have any noticable impact on the area? It's already World War Z as it is....
Re: Money, money, money

Money, money, money

Would you like Vodafone's SmartTablet, that's Windows 8 you know? No it's not, it's Android
Do I have a laptop? Yes thanks, it's only 12 months old
Do you take it outside of the house? Yes, when I go on holiday
Would I like a Vodafone 3G dongle for mobile broadband? No thanks, I'll stick with free wifi hotspots

Do you have any children? Would they like a phone? No, they're 7 and 2!!!!!
OK, is there anything else you'd like to buy from us? No. NO NO NO NO NO.
