Windows on ARMEarlier this month, Qualcomm announced that its ARM-based chipset, the Snapdragon 800, is coming to Windows RT 8.1 devices, with the first models destined to launch "later this year". Today, at Microsoft's BUILD developer conference in San Francisco, we got a very brief look at a development device featuring the new chipset.

Qualcomm's reps were keen to stress that the tablet you see here isn't destined for production, and is purely for development purposes. It's based on a version of the company's 'Liquid' tablet reference design, which debuted with the Snapdragon S4 in late 2011.
