Look who's in the tablet market, increasing the rivalry. The top elite company, Microsoft, has announced its tablet “Microsoft Surface” to be launched to the market on October 26, 2012. It is an upcoming series of tablets to be available in two distinct versions: one with Windows RT and another with Windows 8 Pro.
Windows RT is effectively the light version of Windows 8, as it does not have the desktop version of Windows 8, which runs only the apps offered by the Windows app store and Microsoft Office. Windows RT is an upcoming version of the Windows 8 operating system, and is being used for devices such as tablets. It runs only on the software available through Windows Store or the one in Windows RT. The RT acronym does not officially have an explanation.
