    Samsung plans Windows RT tablet: A 'cover all bases' land grab?

    Summary: Samsung is said to be planning a Windows RT tablet, according to reports, but is the move a bid to 'hands in all pots' to take on its arch-rival in the table space?

    By Zack Whittaker for Between the Lines | July 9, 2012 -- Updated 08:17 GMT (01:17 PDT)

    Samsung is planning to announce an ARM-powered tablet running Windows RT --- known as Windows 8 on ARM --- according to Bloomberg, citing sources familiar with the matter.

    There's little to go on besides rumblings that the device will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and that the company expects to launch around the same time as parent operating system Windows 8 is released into the wild --- expected in or around October.

    Yes, it's going to be tough for MS.

    PC sales increased modestly by about 2% last year.

    Win8 will slow that , pc sales will take a hit

    MS are going to find it hard to make a serious impact on the current $400 plus tablet market leaders.

    They are leaving everything under that price open to Google/Android ( and Apple if they bring out mini ipad)
