Hewlett-Packard Will Focus On Windows 8 and Intel For Its Tablets

There will be two broad categories of slates running Microsoft’s platform: those based on ARM chips that will run Windows RT and those that have an Intel x86 chip at their core, running Windows 8. Out of the two, Hewlett-Packard, the largest maker of personal computers, will only go with the Intel chip (at least at the beginning).

It is surely a hard hit for ARM to not have its chips powering HP’s slates but, as Marlene Somsak, spokesperson for the computer maker stated, the first HP tablet running Windows 8 will be addressing the business market. And, in order to clear all doubts and answer all those asked (and not asked) questions, Somsak said that HP’s decision was made before Microsoft decided to make its own tablet, the Surface, “in competition with Hewlett-Packard”.
