HP axes Windows RT tablet roadmap

Posted on Monday, July 02 2012 @ 21:55:58 CEST by

PC Mag learned that HP has cancelled its plans for Windows RT based tablets powered by ARM-based CPUs from Qualcomm. Instead, the company will focus on a business tablet running Windows 8.
What's not entirely clear is if Microsoft's announcement that it's making its own in-house Windows RT tablet, the Surface, had any impact on HP's decision-making process. Microsoft revealed the Surface last week at an event in Los Angeles, immediately sparking speculation that the company's OEM channel might rebel against the notion of their software partner producing a competitive device.

Microsoft hasn't named a release date for the Surface, which will come in a Windows RT version that uses an ARM chip and a Windows 8 flavor sporting an x86 chipset, one of Intel's Medfield generation of Atom SoCs. The latter silicon platform is what HP will be building on with its first Windows 8 tablet, the company told PCMag.
