Lenovo Yoga 11 Windows RT seemingly axed as official store stops sales

Lenovo has apparently discontinued its only Windows RT notebook, the IdeaPad Yoga 11 convertible, quietly ceasing sales through its own online store. The Yoga 11, which ran the pared-back Windows RT on NVIDIA's Tegra 3 chipset, has seemingly been superseded by the newer Yoga 11S, which swaps out the ARM chipset and replaces it with an Intel Core i3 processor and a full copy of Windows 8.

Nokia Windows tablet prototype appears again: in the flesh

It's appeared again - the fabled Nokia Lumia tablet, complete with a set of specifications that are set to put suggestions of a final run to rest. What we've got here is a very unconfirmed sort of situation, but a friendly vision to behold, nonetheless.

Microsoft Surface 2 with Snapdragon 800 LTE tipped in testing

Microsoft is set to reveal new versions of the Surface RT tablet, using Qualcomm Snapdragon processors alongside existing NVIDIA Tegra chips, sources claim, with the goal of adding integrated LTE support.

Windows RT Office 2013 suite tipped by early Outlook install

While Microsoft continues to push two different sects with their Windows 8 / Windows RT split, users deciding on the latter have made a case for needing one app particularly: Outlook. The 2013 version of Outlook has been confirmed earlier this week to be coming to Windows RT soon, but until then, the waiting will include early previews and sneak-shots galore. While surprises may be in store for users once the app is made real for the public, at the moment it seems that there's a severe lack of excitement going on for those users pre-testing the software - save a full Office suite, that is.

Microsoft slashing Windows RT licensing to rescue interest tip sources

Microsoft is believed to be discounting Windows RT tablet OS licenses in an attempt to stimulate interest in the Windows-on-ARM platform. Windows RT had been Microsoft's strategy to directly take on the iPad and Android tablets with more affordable chipsets from Qualcomm and others, but lackluster app compatibility left OEMs hesitant. Now, Bloomberg's sources claim, Microsoft is relying on good old fashioned discounting to drive interest.

Acer dismisses Windows RT as not “influential”

Acer has joined the Windows RT naysayers, with the company's chairman, J.T. Wang, criticizing the Windows-on-ARM platform for lacking influence in the market. The Taiwanese company hasn't been slow to jump on board the Windows 8 bandwagon - being the first company to launch an 8-inch Windows 8 tablet, in fact, earlier today at Computex - but Wang told the WSJ that his confidence didn't extend to the sibling OS.

HTC reportedly scraps 12″ Windows RT tablet plans (but 7″ still on the way)

HTC reportedly scraps 12″ Windows RT tablet plans (but 7″ still on the way)

HTC has reportedly axed plans to launch a 12-inch tablet running Windows RT, sources claim, after deciding demand for the slate would be insufficient, though a smaller version is still said to be on the roadmap. The unnamed 12-inch tablet was sidelined over fears that it would be too expensive, Bloomberg reports, with the components required adding up to too great a bill-of-materials to allow a competitive street price.
