Samsung’s early involvement with Windows 8 tablets suggests that the South Korea-based consumer electronics giant intends to play a big role in the launch of the new OS — early Windows 8 tablet prototypes supplied by Microsoft to the press for review were built by Samsung — so it should come as no surprise that Samsung is already prepping a Windows RT slate. Citing unnamed sources, Bloomberg reported recently that Samsung has plans to be among the first to launch a tablet powered by the upcoming stripped-down version of Microsoft’s next-generation operating system. Samsung will launch a Windows RT tablet as soon as Microsoft’s new OS debuts in October according to the report, and it will be powered by a Qualcomm processor. No other details regarding the device’s hardware were provided. Read the full story at Boy Genius Report.
