TI Shows Off Toshiba’s Windows 8 RT Device

Texas Instruments has demoed its OMAP processor capabilities on a tablet running Windows 8. Its a Toshiba’s Windows RT tablet running on TI’s OMAP 4470 SoC. As you can see in the video above, Windows 8 runs fast and fluid on a low power ARM processor same as that of running on a powerful x86 chip. Microsoft was working with chip makers, OEMs, etc, to provide this level of great experience on Windows 8 devices. Also Microsoft is yet to reveal the full details on Windows RT OS and the Office bundle which comes with it.

Are you ready to buy a Windows RT device ??

    I think that until there is a compelling catalog of WinRT apps that x86 laptops and tablets will be the market driver unless RT tablets come in at a very low price point below $350. For now, I’ll stick with the 14″Asus Transformer book. It will cost three times as much, but it can run any app.

      The transformer can run Windows apps?

        The Asus Transformer Book is an x86 Windows 8 dockable tablet that Asus revealed last week. It will run both WinRT apps and traditional x86 apps. I have been running each Windows 8 preview and only a few apps have been incompatible. Hopefully it will be powerful enough to run most of my Steam games. I’ll let you know.
