Poll: Should Microsoft build a Surface RT 2?

Microsoft announced yesterday that it took a massive $900 million charge against the Surface RT. Knowing this, should Microsoft build a Surface RT 2? Clearly, since the company took such a large hit on the first model, you would hedge that it might abandon plans for a second generation of the device; but rumors still persist that a 7-inch device is in the making (though it could be a Windows 8 device).

It’s not an easy question, as Microsoft needs to find a way to build a presence in the tablet market but with such a large hit to the bottom line, is it good business to keep pushing your own product or should Microsoft let its vendors roll the dice and see if they can take back the market from Apple?
