It seems, that there won’t be that many companies out there to release Windows RT tablet along with Microsoft. There is, of course, a very good reason – the software giant is being very careful about who they’re going to let make first-generation tablets with their brand new ARM-optimized platform. According to the Chinese edition Economic Times, Microsoft have told each of the main manufacturers of ARM chips to pick out two companies, with which they’re going to work. Of course, this is only going to be the case with the first wave of Windows RT tablet, which is going to be released this fall.
NVIDIA have picked Lenovo and Asus as their partners, Texas Instruments have chosen to work with Toshiba and you’re going to find Qulacomm chips in Samsung-branded devices. The latter chip manufacturer was also supposed to work with HP, if it wasn’t for their recent announcement, that they’re not going to make Windows RT tablets, at least for now. In the end, Qualcomm’s second partner might end up being Dell. According to the rumors, Microsoft are going to allow the rest of the manufacturers to also release Windows RT tablet of theirs in January, so we’re expecting the first offers form different OEMs to start appearing in Q1 of 2013.

Microsoft has sent out invitations for an even of theirs on 18.06, which has, of course, managed to cause a lot of online speculations about what we’re going to see unveiled. The main reason for this is the fact, that this event is going to be held just a couple of days before another even, at which the software giant is going to reveal the next version of their mobile platform – Windows Phone 8. According to some, at the earlier event Microsoft are going to focus on Windows RT – a version of the OS, which is going to run on devices with ARM chips, and they’re going to use it as a chance to tell us more about the apps and services, which are going to be available for such devices.
Meanwhile, though, another rumors has appeared online, claiming that Microsoft is about to announce a tablet of their own, with which to directly compete with the other manufacturers on the market. The time could actually hardly be more convenient – this is pretty much the best moment to reveal such a device, just before the Google I/O conference, at which Google is also expected to announce a tablet of theirs. It’s also worth mentioning, that Microsoft recently made a deal with Barnes&Noble, around which a lot of Windows Phone cross-references were made and a device was even mentioned, bearing the name Microsoft Reader.

At least for the time being, Chrome OS can’t exactly be called a successful platform, especially compared to Google’s other (though mobile) OS – Android. As it turns out, though, its fate isn’t going to remain independent much longer – according to an interview, which Linus Upson has recently given for TechRadar, the company has already planned out a strategy for their platforms and the company’s customers should expect them to merge sooner or later. Upson has also mentioned, the fact that Microsoft and Apple still rely on different software for their computers and mobile device, also throwing in Microsoft’s unsuccessful attempt to unify Windows 7 with Windows Phone 7. According to hit, though, the pocket devices of today have the capabilities to be almost as useful as full-sized computer, meaning that with the right software they could one day actually replace them, which is why it’s so vital for the software giants to start working on eliminating the differences between the “full” and mobile versions of their systems.
We have to say, though, that Microsoft are currently closest to realizing this idea with the long-awaited Windows 8, which is going to be a big step forward to merging the PC version of Windows with the mobile one – Windows Phone, though, we can’t know for sure just how successful it’s going to turn out until it comes out later this year.

After months of rumors about Google’s cloud service, known as Drive, it has finally been released. The applications allows not only storing files, such as pictures, music, etc., online, but also makes them available for viewing and downloading from multiple devices – currently it’s supported by Windows, Mac and Android with iPhone, iPad and Linux versions coming soon. Google Drive comes with 5GB of free storage space and, of course, you can upgrade your account later on. Prices start from just $2.49 per month for 25GB, through $4.99 for 100GB and than continue to go up by $5 for every 100GB. The largest amount of space you can get is 16TB, which is going to set you back by $799.99 monthly.
Thanks to its integration with Google’s other services, Drive is going to be especially appealing to people, who already use such Google services and/or have an Android device. Some of these tempting features are the integration with Google Docs, which allows different users to comment on and even edit the same document simultaneously. Some other interesting features are the possibility to attach documents, which are stored online, to emails and Drive’s ability to recognize text in scanned documents and search for certain words or phrases.

Microsoft and their partners are planning on launching an aggressive attack on Apple’s iPad and its market share this fall, according to new information, which recently appeared online. That’s when the next generation of Windows – 8, is going to be released and Microsoft and Intel are stimulating big mobile device manufacturers to assault Apple.
Currently the iPad has about a 70% share of the tablet market, but if Windows 8 turns out to be a success, Microsoft reckon it can be brought down to 50% by the middle of next year. By this year’s end we should see more than 30 tablets with this new platform with prices starting at less than $300, so there is definitely a huge potential. Still, judging by Windows Phone current state, even innovative platforms with a friendly and simple user interface sometimes turn out to be unsuccessful. B.

During the IDF 2012 event, which was recently held in China, Intel managed to surprise the audience by reveling an interesting device – hybrid between a tablet and a laptop, which is running Windows 8. The gadget is known as Cove Point, though until recently it was called Letexo. It’s actually a very interesting concept (though in all fairness, not really a new one – the ASUS EeePad Slider has quite a similar form-factor) – the device can be viewed as a normal, albeit thick, tablet, but as soon as you swipe the screen (12.5″ in diagonal) up and reveal the QWERTY keyboard underneath, it becomes a laptop and a powerful one at that, thanks to its Ivy Bridge processor.
When we can expect to see such a device remains unknown, but Microsoft have recently said to have taken a major part in the design of a series of ultrabooks, running the latest version of their OS and one of them might just be the Cove Point. B. A.If you liked this post, Buy Me a Beer - click here
Up until now, Microsoft hadn’t actually announced the name of their much expected OS – everyone was just sort of assuming, that it’s called Windows 8. Well now it has been confirmed…sort of. The next generation of Windows is going to come in (just) 3 editions, one of which is going to be called Windows RT and will only be used on devices with ARM-based chips (read tablets). This version is only going to come pre-installed on such devices and won’t be sold separately. A unique feature it’s going to offer is the touch-optimized Microsoft Office, which is vital to a big part of Microsoft’s target group.
The other two versions are both going to be used with x86 processors and are called Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. As you have probably figured out, they’re both going to be the same basic software, but the latter is going to come with more features aimed specifically at business users. It’s going to support encryption of the file system, Remote Desktop (host) and similar features, which the avarage user doesn’t need.
All 3 version of the new Windows will support both keyboard and mouse and touch-screens as input methods with the choice down to the user, to decide which would suit his purposes best. B. A.If you liked this post, Buy Me a Beer - click here

Microsoft haven’t been very secretive of their plans to create a single ecosystem , which could unite all of the devices, such as phones, tablets, computers, laptops and so on, but are they also planning to go even further, are we going to see e-book readers and TVs running Windows 8? According to the most recent rumors, that is exactly what the future holds for Microsoft’s platform and some even say, that the company is already working on e-book readers, running their OS and, of course, using the Metro interface. This is actually quite a smart move, considering the popularity of these devices in the last couple of years. Of course, this rumor begs the question about the possible cost of licensing Windows 8 for such a gadget, which, after all, has to be cheap enough for people to buy. B.
