Windows HP has told Bloomberg reporter Dina Bass that the company has no plans to sell ARM-based Windows 8 tablets initially (thanks, The Verge) - it will only do x86 tablets. This may actually explain why Microsoft is getting into the business of selling its own tablets: other than Asus, not a single company has announced a Windows ARM tablet. Pretty abysmal start for Windows RT.

If MS is marketing RT as an OEM version then why would they care so much about making a product of their own. The OS is for OEM's.

Kinda hard for Windows RT to be successful when they can't get anyone to create the HW so they're doing it themselves. Microsoft is the OEM. Do you not know what OEM means?
