If you've been waiting for the other shoe to drop in the tablet market, today is the day. We're a few days ahead of Microsoft's Surface and Windows 8 launch on October 26th but the folks at ASUS (and other OEM partners) have been given the green light to let fly with their Windows RT tablet offering today. Microsoft is allowing the wraps to slip off of their Windows RT operating system, a branding otherwise known as Window 8 for ARM-driven devices. And interestingly enough, it looks as if NVIDIA has a solid lock on the Windows RT tablet market share, as not only Microsoft's Surface but virtually every Windows RT tablet to hit the market today is driven by NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core system on a chip.
So, the sixty-four-thousand dollar question, as they say, is: Does Windows 8/RT have what it takes to compete in the sea of Android and Apple tablets currently on the market, as the Jelly Bean turns? We'll try and answer that question to the best of our ability for you, in the pages that follow.
