Windows RT tablet market: Toshiba’s out

Toshiba has announced this week that it will be pulling out of the Windows RT market before it begins this coming season, letting it be known that they'll be working with Windows 8 software instead. The difference between Windows 8 and Windows RT is Windows RT's limitation to what was formerly called "Metro" apps.

Microsoft Surface Windows RT confirmed with NVIDIA’s Tegra processor

While Microsoft announced two new Surface PC tablets today at their event in LA, one thing they didn't make clear was the processor under the hood powering one of their new slates.

NVIDIA has just confirmed it will be running their Tegra chipset.
