Dell Possibly Left Out of Windows RT Launch

Dell Possibly Left Out of Windows RT Launch

Since HP has declined to be involved with Windows RT devices, participating manufacturers have been narrowed down to just ASUS, Toshiba, Samsung and Lenovo. Speculation has since pointed to Dell as the next vendor to join the Windows RT launch. However, recent reports have surfaced indicating that Dell isn't part of the Windows RT launch.

Business Insider correspondent Julie Bort has reached out to Dell, asking if Dell is involved in making a Windows RT tablet, but received a non-concrete answer. She also said that Dell could only confirm that it's actively building a Windows-based tablet, but shared no further details.

We also can't help noticing that since Microsoft announced it would be competing with its OEM partners making tablets, Dell has released a bunch of new high-end ultrabooks that can run Linux. Today the company announced two new workstations, the 15.6-inch Precision M4700 and the 17.3-inch Precision M6700, geared for heavy graphics work like computer aided design. They can run Windows or (surprise!) Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Business Insider also pointed out that if Dell was lobbying to get in on some Windows RT action, it probably wouldn't announce a barrage of high-end Ultrabooks and desktops running Linux.
