Samsung, Korean electronics brand has confirmed that it will launch the Windows 8 operating system based tablet in the month of October this year. Tablet based on the upcoming Windows 8 RT platform will be launched. It will be optimized for better touch screen performance along with the inclusion of the 'Metro' style user interface that is similar to the one that is being used on Windows Phone presently. It has been reported that Samsung tablets will be released when Windows 8 itself is unveiled in October. They will enhance Microsoft's continuing bid to get into a tablet market that is dominated by Apple's iPad. Samsung join the bandwagon of Windows 8 based device manufacturers of which HP has already announced to be a part of but HP will only be focusing on Windows 8, Intel processor, based devices in order to maintain its core business.
Microsoft has offered Windows RT access only to limited number of PC makers in order to maintain the quality of devices that will be available in the market. Nvidia, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments were allowed to design the chips for devices such as tablets, notebooks or hybrid devices like the Asus transformer. Large chunk of the tablets available today are based on the ARM architecture based processor including Apple iPad.
