Yeah, they need to really think all or nothing about bringing Windows to the tablet market. There's a market for full Windows compatibility in a tablet. Without that, it's just a GUI preference and app support comparison between RT, IOS and Android, which for the most part RT loses. It really only serves to muddy the water for Microsoft.
Their biggest structural problem is they're not set to monetize the tablet's operations like Google is. Google doesn't need to make money on android or chrome OS, because they make money from the things people do on it. M$ has to get cash up front for that tablet copy of Windows.
