Thurrott posted to his site specs and screen shots of a number of Windows 8.1 tablets -- including still-unannounced devices from Nokia (the "Sirius" ARM-based Windows RT tablet -- a photo of which, courtesy of Thurrott, is embedded in this post above); Lenovo; and Dell. He also posted specs and a number of still-not-public pricing and battery-life details about some of the devices that Microsoft's partners showed at the IFA and Intel Developer Forum (IDF) shows this week.
If Thurrott's information is accurate, here's what's coming this fall/holiday season:
A reminder -- because no one should assume this is clear to all/most PC/tablet buyers -- the Intel-based Haswell- and Bay-Trail devices can run existing Win32 apps, alongside Metro-Style/Windows Store ones. The ARM (Qualcomm/NVIDIA)-based devices will support very few non-Metro-Style apps (primarily Microsoft Office and some Windows utilities). Haswell is the more powerful, fourth-generation Intel Core processor; Bay Trail is the latest of the less-powerful, but longer-battery-life Atom processor in Intel's family.
