+ - Where are the Windows ARM tablets?->

MrSeb writes "Late yesterday, Intel took to the stage at Computex in Taiwan and announced its next steps towards mobile domination. To help with the development of touch-enabled tablets and ultrabooks, Intel is investing in factories that specialize in 13-inch-and-larger touchscreens. At one point, Tom Kilroy, Intel’s vice president of sales and marketing, pulled back a curtain to reveal 50 new ultrabooks. The Big Reveal, though, is that there are 20 Atom-powered (Clover Trail) Windows 8 tablets in the works, many of which will be released in conjunction with Windows 8 this fall. On the other side of the fence, there is just one ARM-powered Windows 8 (RT) tablet at Computex: the 10.1-inch, Tegra 3-powered, dockable Asus 600. If you include a Windows RT prototype shown off by Toshiba and a Snapdragon S4-powered reference tablet from Qualcomm, that brings the total up to 3 ARM-powered Windows 8 tablets — a far cry from the huge number of product wins that Intel is touting. Where are the Windows ARM tablets? Where are the Samsung, Dell, and HP Windows RT devices? If they’re not showing off Windows RT tablets at Computex, then they’re probably waiting for CES — which isn’t until January 2013. By that point, Intel and its trusty OEMs will have enjoyed massive x86 tablet sales from Black Friday and Christmas. Does Windows RT stand a chance?"
