  • Windows on ARMIf you've been considering getting one of the new Always Connected PCs, but you're uncertain about having to pay for a data plan every month, Sprint has some good news for you. The carrier is now offering free unlimited data for any Windows 10 on ARM device, including the ASUS NovaGo, the HP Envy x2, and the Lenovo Miix 630.

  • Windows on ARMStar Trek II, Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, Ms. Pac-Man. Sometimes the sequel is much better than the original. Let's hope that's the case with "always-connected" laptops, a new generation of Windows 2-in-1s that use Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and built-in 4G to provide the constant connectivity and long battery life you get from a smartphone.

  • Windows on ARMAlways-Connected PCs, the end result of years of work by Microsoft and Qualcomm on the vision for Windows on ARM, will soon be available. With multiple OEMs gearing up to reveal their take on the new class of 'cellular PCs' before the end of the year, Microsoft has now announced the list of carriers who will provide connectivity to these devices.

  • Windows on ARMToday, at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit, Microsoft and Qualcomm officially unveiled the first ARM-powered Windows 10 laptops. These devices, referred to as Always Connected PCs, are always on, always connected (via LTE), and promise "incredible" battery life. How incredible? Well, depending on how much you use them, you could see around 22 hours of active use/a month of standby between charges.

  • Windows on ARMWith Windows on ARM PCs right around the corner now, benchmarks are starting to appear online, and they're not too exciting. This time, it's a 13-inch laptop from ASUS that's shown up (via WinFuture), codenamed TP370QL.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft first unveiled its plans for ARM-powered Windows laptops last year. The new devices will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor, and will support traditional desktop apps thanks to an emulator in Windows 10. While Qualcomm previously promised laptops before the end of the year, we haven’t heard much about them yet. Asus, HP, and Lenovo are all preparing devices, and it seems like battery life will be a key selling point.

  • Windows on ARMQualcomm has announced that the first ARM-based mobile PCs running Windows 10 are on the way. Asus, HP, and Lenovo are the first device makers to confirm they’re working on ARM-based Windows 10 computers. And according to Qualcomm, all of those upcoming device will be fanless computers.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft didn't have a clue what it was doing with Windows RT. And if it did, its strategy was a total fiasco and it spent an awful lot of money believing its own hype.

  • Windows on ARMOn Wednesday, Microsoft debuted a new, and very funny, TV ad promoting Windows 8, this time by comparing the features of the Asus VivoTab Smart tablet against those of Apple's iPad. Today, Microsoft released a new video that once again takes on the iPad, but this time with an Asus tablet that's running Windows RT.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft set the standard for Windows RT-based hardware, but is there still room for partners to sell compelling alternatives? We take our first Qualcomm-powered Windows RT tablet for a spin to determine if Samsung's ATIV Tab is worth waiting for.

  • Windows on ARMThe ASUS Transformer Prime is arguably the most enticing and desired  10-inch Android tablet. It is also the most functional when mated with its keyboard dock that turns it into a decent notebook. ASUS applied the same approach to the incredibly slim and compact VivoTab RT tablet to give Microsoft's own Surface a run for its money.

  • Windows on ARMIDG News Service - AT&T will start offering the first Windows RT tablet with LTE capabilities on Friday with prices beginning at US$499, the U.S. wireless carrier said on Tuesday.
     

  • Windows on ARMAsus announced the pricing of its 32 GB VivoTab RT tablet, running under Microsoft's Windows RT, to be $599.99 a few weeks ago. That's just for the tablet and not for the optional keyboard dock which would normally add another $200 to its price. By contrast, you can get the 32 GB version of Microsoft Surface tablet, with Windows RT and its touch cover, for $599.

  • Windows on ARMWe've already established that one of the Surface's most distinctive features is its Windows RT operating system, designed to run on hardware driven by ARM's processor architecture. Experientially, Windows RT is very much like the x86 version of Windows 8 we reviewed in The Definitive Windows 8 Review And User Guide, sharing the same Windows 8 UI, Start screen, and multi-touch gesture support.

  • Windows on ARMWith Windows 8 now officially on sale and Windows Phone 8 formally launched last night at Microsoft's San Francisco event, the times they are a-changing over at Redmond. On the subject of Microsoft's new Windows operating system, I was recently able to play with the forthcoming Asus VivoTab RT (in addition to the Android based Padfone 2).

  • Windows on ARMThe TF600 Vivo Tab RT is ASUS's implementation of ARM on Windows. This tablet is VERY light, VERY thin, and the screen is absolutely gorgeous.
     

  • Windows on ARMWe've got our second Windows RT tablet in the labs, the Asus Vivo Tab RT, so it's time to ask the big question: Which one do you want? On the one hand, there's the Microsoft Surface with Windows RT ($699 for 64GB, 4 Stars), Redmond's pristine example of what a Windows RT tablet should be.

  • Windows on ARMRead the comments on any of our ASUS Transformer Pad reviews. It doesn't matter if you pick the mid-range TF300 or the high-end Infinity. You'll invariably find someone saying, "That's nice, but can't it run Windows 8?" It's a perfectly sane request: sure, a tablet and optional keyboard dock make for a convenient setup, but how great would it be if you could use that keyboard to get work done in Microsoft Office?

  • Windows on ARMThe ASUS Transformer line of tablets have consistently been among the strongest contenders in the Android tablet world, so when it was announced that they would be one of the launch partners for Microsoft's Windows-on-ARM push, big things were expected. And so we have the ASUS VivoTab RT.

  • Windows on ARMWhile Microsoft's Surface gets the lion's share of the press, it's not the only tablet running the pared-down Windows RT operating system. The Asus Vivo Tab RT will be one of four Surface rivals going head-to-head with Microsoft's tablet this fall.
