Samsung is reportedly working on a Windows RT tablet that will be launched in October this year, giving the much needed boost to the newly announced operating system.
According to a report in Bloomberg, sources familiar with the development stated that the tablet release will coincide with the Windows RT debut and it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, probably S4.
Samsung's plans to support Windows RT will certainly come as a respite for Microsoft as Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP), the world's largest computer maker, has stated that it won't support Windows RT initially.
HP, on the other hand, will launch tablets running on Windows 8, which will be powered by a processor with x86 architecture.
Windows RT is the first operating system version from Microsoft that is made for touchscreen devices and supports ARM chips, which consume less power than x86.
Microsoft has also recently jumped into the tablet arena by announcing a self-branded Windows RT tablet - Surface.
