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.

Qualcomm is doing huge work optimizing Linux and Windows on their S3 and S4 processors, trying to get as much performance out of the hardware as possible. Rob Chandhok is in charge of software at Qualcomm and in this video he talks about some of the software challenges that Qualcomm is working on to optimize software on their processors.

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.

Asus Tablet 600 with Windows 8 RT on ARM Tegra3

Posted by – June 4, 2012

This new Windows 8 RT on ARM device is a bit like the Asus Transformer Prime but Asus does not want to call it a Transformer Book, it’s running Windows on ARM only, no dual-boot with Android for now (my guess is maybe they change their mind by the release of this device in October or whenever Windows 8 is released). This is kind of a prototype, although the hardware is pretty much the same as the Asus Transformer Prime with Tegra3, this one has 2GB of RAM.
