Microsoft have stated that the manufacturers of their new operating system on tablets will be Dell, Lenovo and Samsung along with Asus and themselves, they will join together to create devices running Windows RT (a version of Windows 8 designed for Tablets). Windows RT will be a built-in part of the tablets and cannot go onto a device as an upgrade or paid update.
Microsoft will be releasing its own tablet “Windows Surface RT” that will be launched around October the 26th. Several reports suggest that this tablet will have a starting price of around $199 pitting it against the same prices points as the Google Nexus and the Kindle Fire.
This new Surface tablet from Microsoft will offer users a full touchscreen experience, this differs from what Microsoft Windows RT partners are doing as they will be gearing more towards a desktop experience instead. Acer has said that they will be releasing some Windows RT devices in the future but at the earliest, this will be some time in 2013.
Toshiba are another manufacturer who have said they are thinking about releasing a Windows RT device but they won’t make a move until they are sure about the market conditions. However, contrary to this Bloomberg has reported that because of a component delay they will not be releasing any Windows RT devices at all.
