No Windows 8 Tablet for HTC

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

I don't have any advertisement and announcement seen about HTC latest Tablet because there is a news that there is no Windows 8 available for their tablet. 

Do you think what is the problem behind this issue?

No Windows 8 Tablet for HTC



During the latest COMPUTEX show in Taipei, many companies showed their latest gadgets and of course tablets, which naturally are running Microsoft’s latest OS including Windows8.

But you are right, HTC failed to show such device, and on our research it was found through “Bloomberg Report” that, Microsoft is reportedly barring HTC from developing tablets with the new OS (win 8)

Visit Bloomberg News for the full details.

The reason apparently is said to be that Microsoft wants to maintain the best quality control in its first wave of ARM based, windows RT Tablets, due to its competition with Ipad, and as per their opinion HTC apparently did not meet the standards. MS is worried about HTC sales figures and their lack of experience in making tablets.

So for the time being, No HTC Tab with Windows8.
