Noting that this program will include both tools and resources for "hundreds of millions of ARM and x86-based devices" that will soon be using Windows 8, NVIDIA added that all four of their processor brands will support Windows 8 in full.

It is true that Acer only a few months ago brought us one of the first round of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets In the Iconia Tab A500, a 10-inch tablet with a thin metal backing attached to one of the cheapest prices on the market.
