Microsoft's new version of Windows written for ARM processors may not be an unqualified success, but ARM's CEO Warren East said the software maker will learn from its mistakes with Windows RT and come back with a better product.
"I'm well aware there is a perceived wisdom that RT hasn't been as successful as lots of people thought it was going be. Quite certainly I'm sanguine about it," East said during an interview at Mobile World Congress.
Sales of Windows RT tablets with ARM processors have been poor, and no new Windows RT device has been released since December last year.
Acer said this week that it would release a Windows RT device later this year, but also said that Microsoft needs to improve the usability of RT and provide a clear value proposition for the OS. Source: PCWorld
