Microsoft Says It Has No Intention Of Abandoning Windows RT
Ryan Martin+ / 9 months ago
Windows RT has been surrounded by crisis talks of late as vendors like Samsung, Acer and ASUS have all more or less dropped, or plan to drop, the ARM-based Windows operating system. Microsoft on the other hand is pushing ahead with the tablet operating system, that supports ARM processors, after a statement made to CNET clarified their position.
Microsoft is apparently already working on new Windows RT based tablets, as all other vendors are rushing to drop the platform.
“Windows remains committed to the ARM platform,” the spokesperson said. “We are looking forward to new ARM-based Windows devices that will launch later this year.”
Microsoft will continue to push Windows RT and Windows 8(.1) with a second generation of Surface tablets. Microsoft is believed to be collaborating with Qualcomm and Nvidia to developer the new series of Surface tablets. The new range of Surface tablets are expected to arrive in Q4 of this year and will start from about $250.
