Today's Microsoft Windows RT tablet announcement to show technology preview devices
All talk indicates that Microsoft will be having a Windows RT tablet announcement, which will showcase the version of its new operating system that will run on slates with ARM-based processors, and it might even introduce a tablet of its own.

The Win 8 slate(s) that will be shown today, and specifically the version of Windows RT loaded, are expected to still be a technology preview, as per analyst Craig Mathias, not something you can go out and buy in a week or two.

Not that anyone expected such a thing anyway, but the analyst goes on to say that the new tablet would likely be more business oriented to differentiate itself from consumer slates like the iPad. We already saw a screenshot of the touch-optimized Office 2013 that will likely come bundled with these Windows RT slates, and that will surely be a big plus for the corporate environment. 

If the Windows RT tablets get competitive pricing, that is - the analyst thinks Microsoft should be pricing them in the $400-$500 range to stand any chance against tablets like the new iPad. With Windows RT licenses reportedly going for $85 on average, Microsoft will have a pricing advantage before anyone else, if it does indeed make its own tablet hardware.

Since Google and Moto seem to have forgotten how to do open source, why not go with productivity on a Microsoft platform. Bring it on.

Today most People are considering buying the Intel x86 or AMD x86 CPU windows 8 controlled Tablets because they will run thousands upon thousands of Windows legacy programs and current Windows 7 desktop and Laptop programs. the PC Gamer community are ready to play thousands of PC games on them the Windows 8 Intel x86 tablet computers are already PC Gamers defacto tablet of choice to play PC games on. The Business Enterprise is begging for a good x86 Tablet People want to know what an ARMS CPU controlled Windows RT can do for them. Right now they have info that there are not enough APPs right now that will be available to the Windows RT Tablet because it is incapable of running x86 Legacy Programs like the Intel x86 Windows 8 Tablets can right out of the box. Microsoft has to show Folks very compelling reasons to consider buying Windows RT Tablets
