The Waves Of 64-bit ARM and Windows 8 Systems Are Going To Have An Impact

RSS

Table of Contents:

The buzz over Apple's iPad Mini (see The iPad Mini Arrives With Few Surprises) and updated iPads is quickly being smothered by two recent announcements including Arm's Cortex-A50 (see Delivering 64-Bit Arm Platforms) and Microsoft's Windows 8 (see Windows 8 Changes Are More Than Skin Deep Windows 8 Changes Are More Than Skin Deep). These two look to be rising waves that will be large and long. It could be a wild ride.

Apple's iPad family will continue to sell well but the overall impact of Microsoft's and Arm's announcement will have a much wider than even the popular iPad. This is because these other two items address more markets than the iPad that has a very large but focused audience.
