Windows RT is the latest version of Windows 8 which will be running on the ARM based devices. Soon after Windows announced that they would be releasing their own Surface tablet there was news about other manufacturers to drop the idea of making devices for Windows RT. But now it seems like this is not the case for the Samsung, as they seem to be planning a Windows RT tablet.
As reported by Bloomberg, this upcoming tablet from Samsung will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and it is expected to be available by October, if the Windows RT is released on time. This is really interesting as Samsung once again is using another ARM processor for their device although they have their own Exynos ARM processors.
However, Qualcomm has already demonstrated a working Windows RT device during the Computex Show. A few minor bugs were noticed at that time but rest assured they will be eradicated by the time of release of this tablet.
So far we have seen a lot of tablet manufacturers shifting towards the Windows tablets, this might be because of the fact that the Android based tablets could not make a business in the market. Only the Amazon Kindle fire made some business while rest of the models struggled to make a position in the market.
So now we can see most of the Tablet manufacturers are showing interest in Windows 8 platform. There is even a pull factor towards the Windows platform as the x86 versions will have the compatibility with current Windows applications and the Windows RT will come with Microsoft Office.
