Last year, Microsoft introduced Windows RT which allowed Windows to run on an ARM supported processor. Bringing Windows RT together with an ARM based processor like the Qualcomm Snapdragon, allowed Snapdragon buyers to produce tablets, notebooks and converts using Windows that are thin, quick and fan-less. At Computex, Qualcomm and Microsoft teamed up to show the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 running on an early version of a Windows RT 8.1 slate.
"We are excited to continue working with Qualcomm Technologies on the next iteration of Windows RT 8.1 with their new Snapdragon 800 processors. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors support our commitment to providing our customers with best-in-class capabilities. Our customers will now have the opportunity to leverage the numerous advantages of these new processors, including integrated 4G/LTE connectivity and outstanding device performance."-Mike Anguilo, Corporate Vice President, Planning and PC Ecosystem, Microsoft Corp.
