Quanta to build Windows 8 ARM tablets for Toshiba, Lenovo?

updated 11:25 pm EST, Wed January 18, 2012

Sources point to OEM deal

Toshiba and Lenovo have reportedly signed deals with contractor Quanta Computer for production of new tablets based on the Windows 8 on ARM architecture. Unnamed sources within the industry have told DigiTimes Quanta will handle the tablet production for both companies, with the first models expected to arrive on the market early next year.

Windows 8 is expected to arrive for Intel-based systems later this year, however several reports suggest companies will take much longer to prepare the ARM-based alternative hardware and software.

Aside from the ARM hardware, Lenovo is also said to be working on other tablets, using Intel's Medfield and Clover Trail chips, which are expected to arrive later this year.

Lenovo and Toshiba have yet to disclose specific plans for Windows on ARM tablets.
