Surface Pro to make RT Extinct?

One of the things that confuses me is the release of Windows RT tablets along side (soon) Pro tablets. Surely there is not room for both?.

Intel is on a bender to get SOC's out there with good battery life so it's only a matter of a year or 2 before acceptable battery life Pro tablets hit the market. What then for RT ? - It seems it's a temporary measure that has no longevity .

The question is, why would you not wait for a longer battery life Pro tablet. If you bought an RT tablet now, by the time a smallish amount of apps are built for it, it will then get eclipsed by Pro tablets with better battery life intel SOC's (probably cheaper to) . There would be no incentive to buy a RT tablet rendering them a dead line. It seems RT has a short life span, so why buy into it?

Just my 2 cents anyway.
