Last week at Computex, Microsoft announced that Outlook will be coming to Windows RT tablets. That’s right, the most-used email applications for professionals and business will arrive as part of the free Windows 8.1 update coming later this year.
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ powered Windows RT tablets have always been great for use and play at home and on the go, but now that Outlook joins the other Office apps already bundled with Windows RT, like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, they will have even more appeal for the office as well.
New hardware offerings will also be available around the Windows 8.1 release, including Windows RT tablets powered by Snapdragon 800 processors. The flagship mobile processor for Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., it is designed to have CPU speeds of up to 2.2 GHz per core, USB 3.0 for ultrafast transfers, and great power efficiency for long lasting battery life. The combination of the new Snapdragon 800 powered tablets paired with the latest Windows 8.1 software should equate to a productivity powerhouse.
