Aaaand Windows RT is dead. Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 won't be coming to either of the Surfaces that run RT, though an update that offers some of the features will. It's Windows Phone 7 all over again. But hey, good riddance.
Microsoft has knocked $100 off the price of its Surface 2 Windows RT tablets—making them cheaper than even the lowliest large iPad models.
A new generation of Windows tablets has arrived with the launch of the Microsoft Surface 2, their second generation tablet, and the Nokia Lumia 2520, Nokia's first ever tablet. With virtually identical functionality and OS software, it is the quality and performance of their displays that really differentiates the…
Nokia just revealed its very first tablet, the 10-inch, Windows RT 8.1-running Lumia 2520. As far as tablets go, it's pretty standard fare.
The Surface RT was Microsoft's brassy if ultimately flawed attempt to do a cannonball into the placid, iPad and Kindle-dominated tablet pool. It didn't quite work out. With the Surface 2, Microsoft is taking the opportunity to say "No guys, but really," with a blistering, scary sort of confidence.
Microsoft just announced that Outlook is coming to Windows 8 RT as part of the free Windows 8.1 update coming later this year. If your office is stuffy about using Outlook only for mail, you can finally use a Surface for work. [Microsoft]
While designers may suffer this the most, pretty much anyone who's typed anything, well, ever has struggled to find the perfect font to suit their means.

Samsung's announced it won't release Windows RT tablets in the US—because it thinks consumers don' know what RT is.
According to a report from The Verge, Nokia's going to out its own Windows RT tablet early next year. That's fine; it would be weirder if they weren't. But what's a little less expected is that the company's elves are hard at work on creating a keyboard cover of their very own.
So this is surprising, and kind of dumb. Microsoft just put a final figure on the storage numbers for Windows RT: 16GB on the 32GB model, and 18GB on the 64GB model. That's even bigger than the already hefty 12GB estimates that had been around before.
Just in time, Microsoft has released a WinPho8 sync tool for Windows 8 and RT. Go forth and transfer media. [Microsoft]
This week was a Microsoft bonanza. A new operating system and new hardware means new apps. So joining the best apps of the week roster is a new batch of titles meant for RT. Inside, you'll find a lot of apps you know and love, all ready for your new Surface tablet.
Surface was the single biggest genuine tech surprise of the year so far. Microsoft tantalized us with a tablet that made the iPad look stale. Its snap-on keyboard made all laptops look immediately old fashioned. And it promised The Future of Computers.
While some PC makers are nervous about building hardware for Windows RT, Samsung's going for it with the Samsung Ativ Tab. Will it be enough to steer people away from Microsoft Surface?
The Verge is reporting that Samsung could announce a new Windows RT tablet, dubbed the ATIV Tab, as early as today at IFA 2012. In addition to only being 8.9 millimeters thick, the rumored device would have a 10.1-inch screen, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Additionally, the tablet would…
Microsoft's new Surface tablets were announced with a whole bunch of hype, but the specs pf the things have been practically non-existent. Now, some details have come out about the Surface RT tablets, revealing that they'll not only be thinner and lighter than the iPad, but also play HD video for 13 consecutive hours.
