Oh snap! Qualcomm says its Windows RT device will be better
As we all know by now, Windows RT powered tablets are coming and Microsoft has opted to join team NVIDIA when it comes to powering its own Surface tablet. Qualcomm may have taken exception to that decision because it is promising that Windows RT devices powered by its Snapdragon processors will be better.

Qualcomm recently held a developers conference called Uplinq. At the event, Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs said Snapdragon-based Windows RT devices will be thinner, lighter, deliver good performance, offer extended battery life, and will still keep things cool while not requiring a fan. He also promised that Windows RT Snapdragon devices would be available when Windows 8 launches.

As far as the platform itself, Jacobs feels that even though most developers are currently focused on Android and iOS, he believes that Windows RT will “refocus the attention on Windows.” He said that the common core that is shared between Windows 8, Windows RT, and Windows Phone would make it easier to develop cross-platform apps and games. To encourage developers to help backup this claim, Qualcomm also announced a Windows RT app developers contest.
