    Windows on ARM is coming late this year to notebooks, tablets and servers.

    In terms of notebooks and tablets, I wonder what surface product MSFT will "lead" with, and what their partner OEMs have planned?

    I thought it might be fun to speculate on what shape this new market will take :)

    I doubt the name "Mini" will be used. Ha ha Is there another word for "note"??? Like a Latin or Greek word? It seems that "note" is a pretty popular name for a device with a screen between that of a phone and a tablet. I was thinking last night....what could MS name their flagship Suface mobile device??? The Surface _________? :)

    Seriously I know. Just looking forward myself and thanks for this thread.

    It will be tablet driven I bet. However I'd like to see MacBook air competition. Fanless thin mega ultrabooks 13".

    Scribe?
    Write?
    Slate?


    Actually if my deductions about "Andromeda" are correct that its a detachable dual screen clamshell, I am confused about what they'll call that either. "Fold"? "Filip" "Notebook"?

    Hopefully they have a jam session on some of these names XD

    Yeah, seems likely to be some kind of tablet. And would be better if it was a little distant from existing form factors, because OEMs could really use a prod to think outside of the whole yoga/surface square.

    I'm hoping for a 8.9 inch tablet with a microphone array for Cortana, active stylus, and AR depth sensors for augemented reality. But I could be dreaming!

    Still yeah, a MacBook air competitor would make a lot of sense, as no doubt ARM could be made thinner, and lighter than x64 has the ability to. And while we are on the topic, a smaller surface studio for more regular folks wouldn't be silly either

    I doubt it will be a laptop or Surface because they just released new ones a month ago. Smaller Surface, maybe.

    Folio

    If we get a fold out dual screen that goes from 5.3" (or so) comm device to 10.x" tablet. A neat trick, IMHO, would be an active back screen in comm mode for notifications, weather, news headlines, etc. Then a stop between comm and tablet where the second screen becomes a virtual keyboard (both screens forced landscape). Then full tablet mode when fully unfolded.

    Don't forget the pen, please and thank you.

    Honestly, we need a hint on when. Or something... Its slowly killing off the mobile crowd from the Windows platform...

    If not when then they need to slip in a note of something concrete that we can save up for...ARM based laptops are not what I need personally. I wouldn't mind an ARM mini surface thing like mentioned before, with LTE. All screen 6" little bezel hard surface-like back/back cover, 7.5mm thick and an aspect ration that allows it to still fit in my pocket and look excellent while working with it. It could even run W10M upgradeable to W10.X or whatever. I'm wondering what the heck they're really waiting on now? Software?
