Not necessarily. These customers could have specifically been drawn to Best Buy just to buy the thing because it has been so hard to actually try it IRL. I'm not sure Microsoft would feel the need to stoop that low. It seems not to have been too bothered about selling masses of the device, just to test a new way (the Apple way) of doing things. Apps will come regardless because Windows RT shares the same kernel for that with Windows 8. And Windows 8 is going to succeed by sheer dominance of the PC platform. Bitcasa has just released a cloud app for Android and Windows 8/RT, with an iOS version to follow in January. Think about it for a second: they released the Windows app before the iOS app. I wonder if this is going to be the start of a pattern.
