Toshiba Cancels Windows RT Launch Due To Delay In Parts

Posted Aug 15, 2012

Toshiba Corporation previously indicated that they were planning to sell computer and tablet devices based on the Microsoft Windows RT operating system because of a delay in getting their hands on components.  Instead Toshiba will focus on building computers built on the Windows 8 operating system with Intel hardware.

Toshiba was going to work with ARM Holdings Plc technology for the Windows RT devices.

?Toshiba has decided not to introduce Windows RT models due to delayed components that would make a timely launch impossible,? stated Toshiba U.S. spokesman Eric Paulsen. ?For the time being, Toshiba will focus on bringing Windows 8 products to market. We will continue to look into the possibility of Windows RT products in the future while monitoring market conditions.?
