After months of lagging sales, retailers are cutting prices on several tablets and convertible devices using Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows RT operating system, IDG News Service reports. In the following video, Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova says the data show he was wrong to declare the Surface RT a hit shortly after release.

Stiff competition has taken a toll. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) enjoyed huge holiday sales of the iPad Mini, while Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) continues to seed the market with its low-cost Kindle Fire.

Does the Surface RT have a future? Will Mr. Softy go back to making Intel-only devices? Please watch and then leave a comment to let us know what you think of Microsoft's tablet prospects.
