» RT lives

Bloomberg claims that Microsoft will be shipping a new Windows RT device:

Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) is planning to introduce a new, smaller version of its Surface that will use Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM) processors for the first time, according to people with knowledge of the companies’ plans, a move that ends Nvidia (NVDA) Corp.’s run as a chip supplier to the tablet.

Microsoft will unveil the new device at an event in New York on May 20, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public.

Maybe there will be a rebranding? Because I don’t think the confusion between Windows and Windows RT — and, by the way, what the heck is Windows RT even for? — has gotten much better.
