HTC blocked from Windows RT? According to Bloomberg, Microsoft is shutting out HTC from developing products for the upcoming Windows RT.
Apparently, HTC doesn't "sell enough devices or have ample experience making tablets," says sources familiar with the situation.

The news comes right on the heels of HTC confirming they are seeing shortages from top chipmaker Qualcomm.

Microsoft's latest update, which will finally run on ARM-based chips, is set for release before the holidays.

The upcoming operating system is called Windows RT on tablets, and Windows 8 on desktops.

Because cutting someone's feet out from under them makes them taller right?

probably better for HTC but though it's a shame on behalf of Microsoft as HTC made their own mobile platform work in the first place well before iPhones etc.

HTC's tablet support blew. The HTC Jetstream, their flagship tablet received only one single ROM upgrade that was nothing more than a security patch. It wasn't even a newer version of Android. They've dropped support for it after less than a year. I SO regret buying it - especially at their ridiculously premium price. They don't deserve a chance with Windows RT. And I wouldn't buy one if they did.
