Windows 8 galore: Gallery of new tablets, PCs, ARM

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Samsung Windows 8 demo tablet that Microsoft handed out at the Build conference was just the beginning.

PC and chip makers at the event are showing an array of different prototype tablets running the new operating system, including tablets built on mobile ARM processors like those used in mobile phones and the iPad.

Texas Instruments is showing Windows 8 running on prototype systems based on the same processor that powers the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet:

Here’s a tablet based on Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core ARM processor, which began shipping last month. It’s going to be used on Android tablets going on sale later this year and Windows 8 systems next year.
