Windows on ARM - Windows RT
Microsoft released a number of important details about its plans for Windows 8 on Arm (WOA) tablets. WOA tablets will focus on having a long battery life as well as being light, thin, and inxpensive. They will feature some traditional Windows elements but have a focus on the Metro interface pioneered on Windows Phone and included as the default on all Windows 8 machines. They can be thought of as Microsoft’s response to the iPad, which will certainly be their biggest competition.
Not surprisingly, many of the first pieces discussing the announcements to hit the media have struck on the “Apple should be worried” theme and have used the fact that WOA tablets will include the major Microsoft Office apps to backup that assumption.
It’s a foregone conclusion Microsoft will shake up the tablet market when Windows 8 ships, which is expected to be sometime before the end of this year, with both WOA tablets and Windows 8 tablets built around more traditional PC hardware like x86/x64 processors. Microsoft says all Windows 8 flavors will ship around the same time.
Although WOA tablets had been announced as part of Microsoft’s overall Windows 8 strategy, very little information was availavle before yesterday. Here’s a recap of the major points from the WOA announcement made by Windows President Steven Sinofsky.
