Nokia just launched the cheapest Windows Phone 8 device on the market yet. It’s Qualcomm S4 (I guess S4 Play Cortex-A5), 3.8″ WVGA, HSPA+, NFC, Bluetooth and a ton of other features.
Here’s probably the top latest Nokia Windows Phone.
Here’s HP’s latest 1600 Euro Windows 8 laptop. 13.3″ touch screen, probably there’s a fast Intel processor inside.
My initial look at Windows Phone 8, asking what is new about it to Harry McCracken Technology Editor at Time.com (he wrote an article about one of the tablets I showed him the Eken VIA8850 based A70 tablet at http://techland.time.com/2012/11/07/a-50-not-really-windows-tablet/).
Here’s my first playing around with the $599 Microsoft Surface with Touch Keyboard and other new Windows RT devices from Dell, Asus and Lenovo that are being released to the market.
I think the $599 is a bit expensive, and I’d like a full Chrome browser on RT, I’d like remote access to all x86 apps streamed over a cloud based x86 app hosting service, I’d like Google Search and Google Maps instead of Bing Search and Bing Maps, but otherwise I think the Surface is pretty cool! Lenovo also shows a pretty impressive 11.6″ Windows RT laptop, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11, but at $799 it’s quite expensive.

For about $1000/1000€ depending on the configuration, it runs Windows 8 on the 20″ 1600×900 touch screen, includes Intel Core i3, i5, i7, up to 1TB hard drive and 4GB or 8GB RAM.
ARM Powered Windows 8 RT Samsung Ativ Tablet shown for the first time. It looks like it can work with a keyboard dock, my guess is the price is going to be $499/499€ without the keyboard, to be confirmed.
ChuangZhiCheng also makes some Dual-core RK3066 Tablets, some Ultrabook and some rugged computer.
Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 uses an Intel Atom processor, runs Windows 8, supports digitizer pen input, comes with an optional keyboard dock. It’s about $499.
