Lenovo appears to be the latest hardware manufacturer working on an ARM-based Windows RT tablet. According to The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), the Chinese PC maker is working on a convertible notebook/tablet outfitted with the ARM-based version of Windows 8. The report says that Lenovo has teamed up with Nvidia to make this new Windows RT device.
According to WSJ, Lenovo’s Windows RT device will be a convertible tablet “with a keyboard that flips around to turn the product into a tablet.” Nvidia will provide the ARM chips to the Chinese PC giant.
If true, then the new device would be Lenovo’s second Windows 8 convertible tablet. Lenovo’s first convertible tablet was IdeaPad Yoga which was revealed earlier this year. IdeaPad Yoga is a convertible notebook that can be bent to transform into a tablet.
It has not been confirmed when the new Windows RT convertible of Lenovo would hit the market. But, Dilip Bhatia, general manager of Lenovo’s ThinkPad business, said on Wednesday that the company will launch a Windows RT device in October.
