Samsung rumoured to be Producing Windows RT Tablets based on ARM Technology


Distinguished Member
According to reports from Bloomberg. Samsung Electronics will release a tablet that features Microsoft Windows RT software when the operating system debuts later in the year.

Samsung has made a handheld computer built on Windows RT, the first version of Windows that works on ARM technology, said unidentified sources, with one saying Windows RT devices will be released in October, one person said.

The decision to support Windows RT follows Samsung’s earlier announcement that it will back another version of Windows and is a shot in the arm after Hewlett Packard said it won't be backing Windows RT as it watches how the market develops.


Windows RT is the first mainstream computer operating system from Microsoft to be built for a touch-screen device and will work on the energy-sipping chips typically used in smartphones.

Samsung’s Windows RT tablet is said to feature Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM)’s Snapdragon processor and has created an opportunity for phone-chip makers Qualcomm, Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN) and Nvidia Corp. (NVDA) to compete against Intel and AMD for orders in the computer industry.
