Windows 8 Tablet Hardware Platform War Coming

Based on the latest rumors, Microsoft is set to release Windows 8 in October. Windows 8 supports for the first time also CPUs that are not x86 based. For mobile devices such as tablets, Windows 8 also supports ARM CPUs. Intel is though of course not letting ARM to take over the Windows 8 tablet market. Intel also has x86 based tablet CPUs. Digitimes has an insider report that outlines which hardware platform each major tablet maker is choosing. 

HP, Dell, Lenovo, Acer and Asustek are supposed to release x86-based tablets in October. Vendors including Samsung Electronics, Sony, Toshiba, Lenovo, Acer and Asustek are supposed tolaunch Windows 8 on ARM (WoA) tablet in early 2013. Nokia is possibly already launching a 10-inch ARM based Windows 8 tablet equipped with Qualcomm processors in November 2012.

It will be very interesting if Intel can extend their Windows PC and laptop domination to the tablet world. The second front for Windows 8 tablets is of course the war against the Apple iPad. If Windows 8 tablets are not reaching a significant market share than it does not matter if Intel or ARM are powering most Windows 8 tablets.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
