Nvidia Joins Hands with Lenovo for a Windows RT Device

August 11, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Lenovo is rumored to be teaming up with NVIDIA for the first time to launch an ARM-based Windows RT tablet. The Chinese PC maker, now the second-largest in the world, is all set to join ASUS in using an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor to power a Windows RT tablet.

One of the sources said the companies are building a convertible notebook, with a keyboard that flips around to turn the product into a tablet.

Lenovo had unveiled a similar device earlier this year, which was nicknamed the IdeaPad Yoga that runs Windows 8 with an Intel chip.

Lenovo has been trying to bring in other tablets to target the fast-growing market. The company announced a business user centric tablet, dubbed the ThinkPad Tablet 2, which also runs Windows 8 and uses an Intel chip.

Dilip Bhatia, general manager of Lenovo’s ThinkPad business, said Lenovo plans to introduce a Windows RT device, though he didn’t elaborate on the specific details of the device.

The arrival of Windows RT, the first version of Windows to run on ARM-based Tegra 3 processors, will offer it additional possibilities for growth in the mobile space.
