Windows ARM Hardware News
Surface tablet pricing will start at $499, Microsoft confirmed today. But is that low enough to entice reams of buyers? - Right off the bat, that price does have at least two things going for it. One, it comes with 32GB of storage not 16GB like the identically priced Apple iPad. Two, it comes with Microsoft Office -- for now that means Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 RT Preview. (The final Office version "will be installed via Windows Update when available," according to Microsoft.)
The Surface RT isn't the only Windows RT tablet coming this year. Four others will debut over the next few months to challenge Microsoft's likely Windows tablet dominance.
The Asus Vivo Tab RT is a 10 inch tablet with a quad-core ARM-based processor and Windows RT operating system. It goes on sale October 26th, but Staples and Newegg are already taking pre-orders for this tablet for $600.
Microsoft surprised everyone on June 18th by announcing their brand new tablets. Microsoft Surface is the way Microsoft sees tablets and supposedly the best way to enjoy Windows 8. It comes in two versions: RT and Pro.
Lenovo introduced the Yoga 11 convertible notebook tablet at a press event in New York this evening. The 11.6″ notebook features a dual-hinge design that allows the display to fold back 360-degrees and convert into a tablet.
