Microsoft first announced Windows on ARM project 2 years back. Since then, they branded it Windows RT and started licensing it to OEMs. In fact, Microsoft itslef has become Windows RT OEM. Since its launch in October 2012, Windows RT devices are struggling to find a place in the fastest growing tablet market. Asus and Samsung discontinued their Windows RT efforts soon after the poor market reception. Lenovo was selling Yoga 11 Windows RT devices until it released Yoga 11S Intel based device. Dell and Microsoft continued selling XPS 10 and Surface RT devices respectively. Today, Dell has also announced that XPS 10 product is unavailable. And they have suggested Intel based Latitude 10 as a comparable system.
So, the only Windows RT tablet you can buy in the market right now is Microsoft Surface RT. In the near future, Surface 2 from Microsoft is getting released. Other than that, I don’t think any other Windows RT device is coming to the market. However, Dell responded regarding XPS 10 with the below information,
“We’re going to be announcing our full tablet portfolio at the event in New York next week and will be providing full details then.”
Will Dell announce a XPS 10 Windows RT tablet successor? Or they will release a Bay Trail based XPS 10?
