  • Windows on ARMA few days ago, Texas Instruments strongly hinted, in an email statement to Neowin, that the company would not be releasing any processors that would be used for tablets running on Microsoft's Windows RT operating system. Today, the other shoe dropped as the company officially announced its exit from the smartphone and tablet chip business.

  • 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 ARMIt's been over a week since the Windows 8 launch in New York, and that means it's been 12 days since I bought a 64GB Surface RT device with a Touch Cover in Microsoft's Times Square pop-up store.

  • Windows on ARMSummary: I love the Microsoft Surface RT hardware, but was thinking a return was imminent. I then took a two day trip without a laptop and am convinced there is a real place in my mobile arsenal for the Surface RT.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft has already launched the Surface tablet and, just as we told you a few hours ago, long-time partners aren't quite pleased with the Redmondians' efforts in the hardware sector. Sadly for some companies, the Surface RT was much more than an appealing product, it was actually a tablet that destroyed their business.

  • 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 ARMRumors that Nokia might launch a Windows RT tablet along with its new Lumia series made headlines several months ago. Although Nokia's officials denied any plans to launch a tablet in the near future, sources close to the matter insisted the Finnish company is actively working on such a project.

  • 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 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 ARMUnlike most products we've seen this year, Microsoft's Surface announcement was a bonafide surprise. In a market where tablets were merely playing catch up to Apple's iPad, the Redmond company deviated from the norm while promising a Brave New World. Several months later and the future is finally here. The Surface with Windows RT is Microsoft's shift in focus as it pledges to Windows 8. And it's in our grubby hands.

  • Windows on ARMFew days after tech giant Aplple unveiled its new line of tablets, Microsoft countered it with its flagship device last night in New York. Microsoft has launched its much anticipated Windows 8 operating system and first tablet device, the Surface with Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro versions.

  • Windows on ARMThere is a new version of Windows available today: Windows 8. Every time you hear about Windows 8, you hear about how vastly different it is from Windows 7 and its predecessors. Then you head to a Microsoft Store, or stumble into one of those pop-up Microsoft Stores at your local mall, and you see the Microsoft Surface tablet... also wildly different from your Windows laptop or iPad.

  • 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 ARMA case could be made that Microsoft has done a poor job marketing Windows 8. Given that it is spending upwards of a billion (with a B) dollars on promotions, the problem is not in hyping the new operating system, but in explaining the differences between Windows 8 for x86 devices and Windows RT, the Windows 8 designed for ARM-based machines.

  • 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 ARMWindows 8 represents a new kind of Windows release for Intel, in terms of the opportunities to expand into new markets, and the threats posed to the chipmaker's core PC processor business.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft is no stranger to tablets, though with Windows RT and Surface the company is hoping to have its first tablet success. Borrowing frugal processors from the mobile industry and a distilled version of Windows 8, and pairing it with distinctive and high-quality hardware, Microsoft certainly appears at first glance to have ticked the right boxes.

  • 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.

  • Windows on ARMWhen I reviewed the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity, one of the best Android tablets available, I ended with this: "If you want one device that's both a tablet and a laptop, I'd wait a few weeks to see what Windows 8 has in store." I said something similar about the Transformer Pad, and about the PadFone. Asus's modular strategy works reasonably well with Android, but seems tailor-made to fit how Windows 8 works.
