H-P (HPQ) says it won't initially launch ARM-based (ARMH) Windows RT (MSFT) tablets, and will focus on selling Intel (INTC) and AMD-based Windows 8 gear. H-P claims the decision was influenced by customer input, and suggests the backwards compatibility of Intel/AMD systems with existing Windows apps was a factor. Last week, the ARM version of Microsoft Surface - thinner, lighter, and probably less expensive - received more attention than the Intel version. (previous)
