Company temporarily pulls its recently released Windows RT 8.1 update for ARM-based devices owing to an unexplained issue.
Microsoft's subtly updated Windows 8.1 tablet feels more like Surface Pro 1.5 -- improved battery life and better accessories make it a worthwhile (albeit pricey) laptop replacement, but it's still not an iPad-level category killer.
The Windows RT 8.1 tablet will sell for $400 with a two-year agreement or for $200 if bundled with a Lumia 925, 1020, or 1520 smartphone.
The new update improves the reliability of IE 11 in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2, says Microsoft.
Nokia goes bigger than ever before with the Lumia 2520, a 10.1-inch 1080p Windows RT 8.1 tablet complete with a powered keyboard accessory for all-day performance.
The company's developers group says in a tweet that both the Windows RT and Windows 8.1 versions of the device are in short supply. But how short is "short," exactly?
Microsoft is sharing more on how existing Windows 8 and Windows RT users will be able to upgrade to Windows 8.1 "Blue" preview and final.
The Windows Blue operating system update is likely to be named "Windows 8.1" when it arrives this summer, according to sources.
