Surface-RT

  • Windows on ARMInstalling Windows RT and Windows 10 ARM on Lumia phones has become a priority for several skilled developers, and after weeks of trying to get this up and running, here’s evidence that at least one such experiment has succeeded.

  • Windows on ARMComment Perhaps more by accident or design, Microsoft managed to lower expectations for Windows on Arm last week – but not set them so low it kills off interest in the platform.

  • Windows on ARMWhile this project is not totally finished (e.g. No Battery status/charging unknown, no cellular, no audio), I decided to post this thread as many people asked me about the tutorial. This is just a brief tutorial, you need to have plenty of time on this to make this happen. Be careful as some steps are very dangerous.

  • Windows on ARMThere is an entire community of users who can't resist exploring new techniques to install operating systems on phones that haven't officially received any support to run said OS. To that end, Microsoft enthusiasts have been attempting to bring different desktop versions of Windows to Windows phones.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft and Qualcomm are moving forward with their Windows 10 on ARM initiative, which is expected to debut publicly in late in 2017 with new devices from HP, ASUS, and Lenovo. Taking Windows 10 from the Intel processors to the ones found in high-end smartphones is one of the biggest, most substantial jumps in modern computing history, because it opens the floodgates to new always-connected consumer experiences.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft is working on a version of Windows 10 that will run on ARM hardware. Unlike Windows RT, the version of Windows 8 that powered the original Surface and Surface 2, this will be a full version of Windows 10 with an emulation layer that allows it to run traditional desktop apps from outside the Windows Store.

  • Windows on ARMWhen Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would be available as a free upgrade for Windows 7 and 8.1 devices, owners of those devices running Windows RT were understandably frustrated by the news that they would not be offered an upgrade path to the new OS. Instead, the company released Windows RT 8.1 Update 3 in September, adding a Windows 10-style Start menu for those devices, but little else.

  • Windows on ARMAll eyes are currently on the Surface Pro 3, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Microsoft has forgot the previous models which are still on sale both online and at retail stores. Redmond today launched a new discount for the original Surface tablet that's now available for only $249 (180 euros) thanks to a Memorial Day sale that cuts $200 (€150) off the initial price.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft's Surface RT, which is actually the first tablet in the company's history, is now available at a very special price in a number of specialty stores across the United States. The Surface RT with 32 GB of storage space will be available for as low as $199 (142 euros) in new specialty stores that will open this month, according to a new report by WinBeta, while Dell's Venue Pro 8-inch tablet will retail for only $99 (71 euros).

  • Windows on ARMIf you are looking for a real bargain these days and you’re planning to purchase a Microsoft Surface tablet, you’re in luck. Windows Phone Central has come across a pretty special offer available on eBay that sells the original Surface RT tablet with 32 GB of storage space for only $179 (€130).

  • Windows on ARMAfter pitting its Surface 2 against Apple's iPad Air (unsurprisingly, the former wins that round), Microsoft is now going after Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 in a new Surface RT ad that focuses on the connectivity options offered by the two devices.

  • Windows on ARMYes, you've read that correctly. Microsoft's Surface RT tablet will be available at US retailer Best Buy under the magical $200 mark. The $199.99 price tag will be attached next to the Windows RT slate between November 28 and November 30, just in time for Black Friday.

  • Windows on ARMI admit it. I was one of those crazies who stood in line to buy a first-generation Surface RT in the first hour it was available. And I did so without having had a chance to test drive a device for more than a few minutes beforehand.

  • Windows on ARMIf you bought an original Surface tablet when it was first released in October 2012, you might have noticed that it did not have an Ethernet port. The tablet also didn't support any USB-based Ethernet adapters. There have been rumors that Microsoft was working on adding Ethernet drivers to Windows RT for the 8.1 release, but Microsoft never officially commented on those plans.

  • Windows on ARMA number of people who own the original Surface RT tablet (now known just as Surface) have not had a lot of luck when it comes to updating the tablet to Windows RT 8.1. Microsoft pulled that update from the Windows Store a couple of days after it was released because it was bricking some Surface RT devices. Microsoft put the update back in the store earlier this week.

  • Windows on ARMIn February, Neowin reported that Microsoft rebranded its original Surface tablets, but it appears the branding changes aren’t over – Microsoft has now dropped the “RT” from its original Surface tablet’s name entirely.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft has brought back the Windows RT 8.1 update in the Store, revealing that it finally fixed a bug which bricked several Surface RT tablets. The company initially said that its botched update only affected a small number of tablets, indicating that only 1 in every 1,000 Surface RTs have actually been damaged.

  • Windows on ARMSummary: Microsoft officials say a fix to Window RT 8.1 is still in the works two days after the company pulled the operating system update from the Windows Store. Updating issues are affecting Surface RT owners only, Microsoft says.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft’s big news this week was, of course, the official release of Windows 8.1, but what was less discussed was the fact that Windows RT had received the same update. Windows 8.1 RT is here, and it is a dramatic improvement over the previous iteration.

  • Windows on ARMWe all know the original Surface RT failed badly, and there are multiple reasons for its lack of success, including overpricing, poor distribution, commercials that revealed nothing about the product, and of course Windows RT -- the operating system that was a total mystery to consumers. No one knew anything about it. It came out of nowhere, hidden in the shadows of Windows 8.
