Windows on ARMIn February, Neowin reported that Microsoft rebranded its original Surface tablets, but it appears the branding changes aren’t over – Microsoft has now dropped the “RT” from its original Surface tablet’s name entirely.


Originally known as the “Surface with Windows RT,” Microsoft changed the ARM-powered tablet’s name to Surface RT on its website in February, also changing the “Surface with Windows 8 Pro” to simply become the Surface Pro. Now Microsoft has dropped the “RT” from the original Surface’s name, similar to the Surface 2 lacking the operating system moniker in its name.

In both instances, Microsoft didn’t formally announce the name changes, instead deciding to simply change the branding on its official Surface website.
