Microsoft (MSFT) might grant just 4 PC OEMs the right to launch Windows RT tablets this fall before allowing more entrants in January, claims Taiwan's Economic Times. Lenovo and Asus will partner with Nvidia (NVDA) to ship tablets, Toshiba with Texas Instruments (TXN), and Samsung with Qualcomm (QCOM). H-P was also going to ship a Qualcomm system, but it had a change of heart. Dell (DELL) reportedly could be working with Qualcomm to fill the gap, but the company has no comment.
