Don't Write Off Windows RT Tablets for Business

Windows on ARMMany writers and manufacturers say Windows 8 Pro tablets are for business and Windows RT (Runtime) tablets are for consumers. Although there's some merit to this pigeon-holing, pigeons can live in many locations. CIOs shouldn't write off Windows RT for business.

Although neither Windows 8 Pro nor Windows RT is commercially available, Microsoft has published a fair amount of information about the operating systems. Last week Microsoft's Mike Angiulo, vice president of the ecosystem and planning team, published a long blog about Windows RT. So far Asus, Dell, Lenovo, Samsung, and, of course, Microsoft will produce Windows RT tablets. Microsoft determines which manufacturers may license the operating systems.
