Windows RT Mobile Devices Won’t Bring Anything New to Corporate Users
The Windows RT is one of the four versions of Windows 8 and it is optimized for ARM-based hardware, such as tablets, network devices and many others. It won’t support application developed for x86 architecture. Windows RT also lacks PC management, domain connectivity and virtual client support, all of which are reserved for bigger versions, Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 Enterprise.
While mobile industry hailed Windows RT as the next step to close the gap between mobile devices and desktop computing, enterprise customers won’t find anything new. Current Android and iOS devices already work nicely for managing contact list, corporate calendars and email. Windows RT devices will support only a subset of Microsoft Office with Word, Excel, PowerPoint and One Note and it doesn’t even have Outlook.
