Other RT manufacturers?
Pardon my ignorance on this, but are any other manufacturers implementng RT or are MS going solo on this?
I'm well pleased with my Surface but just wondering what future development for RT will be like if there's no widespread pickup on this OS.

Dell, Samsung, Asus, Lenovo have all demoed RT devices.
Microsoft have promised 4 years support.

@bronven and @Stiggy
There seems to be some confusion about whether MS mean 4 years for the Surface as hardware or 4 for RT as an OS.
Regardless, you definitely have 4 years support for your Surface (2 more than the original iPad got) and possibly more for the OS itself.

Why no colours?
Why is it seemingly impossible now to get coloured keyboards?
Even on the MS site you can only get black or white.

Where was it!?
Went to John Lewis this weekend to have a look and they had the signs up.
But they had none on display. Asked about it and they still hadn't received a demo unit let alone stock.
Same story with Lenovo and Asus and trying to find their Window s 8 laptops.
Do these companies not want to sell their products?
