Windows 8 RT

Postby moneil » Thu Dec 27, 2012 6:02 pm

I've been drooling over some of the new Windows 8 tablets, as a replacement for my Nook Color with a n2a card.

I know that HanDBase would run on a tablet with the full Windows 8. There are also Windows 8 RT tablets, such as the Surface (though a "professonal version" with the "full" Windows 8 OS is due out in January). Windows 8 RT can only run applications from the Windows store, "BUT" I also have gotten an impression that this is primarily for app marketing and because of the less powerful processers used in RT tablets that might be overwhelmed by some full Windows applications, rather than any real difference in the OS, but I don't know if this is correct.

Is Windows 8 RT different than the new Windows mobile OS for phones (which there isn't a HanDBase version for yet)? If it is different and HanDBase would run on it will HanDBase be available from the Windows store?

Thank you.
