The only killing feature a WIn RT brings is the Microsoft Office. It will be interesting to wait and watch how well these apps run on a Windows RT based device, there are already some fumes coming out of it, but will have to give some more time to get some concrete FEEDBACK. Looking forward for positive feedback....
I'm not surprised given Microsoft's moves to jump ahead of its own customers.
That said, Lenovo has already launched its product, and both Asus and ZTE have plans for WinRT.
The big question to me is whether there is much of a Windows tablet market for Microsoft or anyone. Do users want Windows apps on their tablets enough to pay the Windows OS and memory tax for them?
What edge does WinRT have over Android tabs besides a higher cost?
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
