Toshiba OMAP4470 Windows 8 RT ARM Powered Laptop and Tablet shown on video

Posted by – June 17, 2012

I was looking for it at Computex, I couldn’t find it being publicly demonstrated yet, but here it is on a 1-minute video. This new OMAP4470 ARM Powered Laptop from Toshiba looks nice! Now it’s going to be even nicer when/if it gets confirmed that this new Toshiba ARM Powered Laptop can legally multi-boot with Android, Chrome OS and Ubuntu and preferably be sold well below $500 with or without the hopefully optional $85 Windows RT licence.

Windows 8 RT on a $68 7″ VIA 8850 ARM Cortex-A9 Tablet by Eken

Posted by – June 7, 2012

Check out Windows 8 on a $68 VIA 8850 Powered 7″ capacitive tablet! (just a home replacement) What is the difference in performance and potential features between an optimized Android Home Replacement and a “real” native Windows RT machine?

I think it is obviously meaningless for Microsoft to insist on making Windows 8 a separate closed/proprietary/incompatible ecosystem to Android. And it’d be even more wrong if Microsoft wants to forbid tablet and laptop makers to dual-boot Android with Windows RT.

A bunch of Ultrabook convertibles at the Intel press conference at Computex 2012

Posted by – June 6, 2012

Here are some convertibles Ultrabooks with touch screens shown by Pegatron, Foxconn, Inventec, Lenovo, Samsung, Acer, Lenovo, NEC, Sony, Asus, LG, HP and Toshiba. All are showing new Ultrabooks at Computex 2012 but that doesn’t mean that they are going to sell many. In fact, Intel does not want to answer the quantity question. I don’t know anyone who has bought an Ultrabook and I don’t know anyone who wants to pay $1000 for a laptop. I’d like to see $199 ARM Powered Ultrabooks sooner rather than later.

Windows 8 RT on the Qualcomm S4 Snadragon development platform

Posted by – June 5, 2012

This demo of Windows 8 RT on Qualcomm S4 seems to be very smooth. There are a few bugs here or there, but overall, it looks quite smooth to me. I think Windows 8 on ARM is going to be more popular than Windows 8 on x86, yet I think that Android will remain far more popular than all forms of Windows.
