Lenovo signs up for Windows RT

Written by Nick Farrell



Joining the bandwagon


The dark satanic rumour mill claims that Lenovo is signing up for Windows RT. Tom's Hardware is reporting that Microsoft isn't the only company which want to produce both Windows RT and regular Windows 8 tablets.  It claims that that a Redmond official confirmed its Atom-based ThinkPad 2 and is planning a Windows RT slate, too.

Lenovo has a deal with Nvidia to build Windows RT tablets and is working on a convertible notebook/tablet that runs on an Nvidia processor and the ARM version of Windows 8. It appears that Lenovo will to release the tablet at the same time as the ThinkPad 2, which is a Windows 8 tablet with Intel inside.

Windows RT can only officially run software available through the Windows Store or included in Windows RT, and has less functions. Unless it is much cheaper it is hard to see how an RT version would be better.  The ThinkPad 2 has a 10-inch 1366 x 768 IPS HD display, an Atom processor, an 8-megapixel camera in the back and a 2-megapixel camera up front for video calling, micro-HDMI, NFC, a fingerprint reader, and a pen. There will be an optional 3G/4G.

Still we will know after October when Windows 8 comes out.
