Microsoft now the only manufacturer selling Windows RT devices

With Dell’s XPS 10 now off the market, Microsoft remains the sole manufacturer still selling a Windows RT device, according to an article in CITEworld.

Windows RT is a variant of Windows 8 designed to run on power-sipping ARM processors. While devices running Windows RT have longer battery life than those running Windows 8, Windows RT is also more limited. Unlike Windows 8, which is backwards compatible with all Windows programs, Windows RT only runs new-style apps created specifically for the Windows Store, which launched in conjunction with Windows 8.
