TI EXCLUSIVE VIDEO UPDATE: See it here first! Toshiba’s thin, sleek clamshell and tablet PCs draw on the OMAP platform to deliver a new computing experience made possible by Windows RT.

This past week in Taipei, the industry got its first real glimpse of the new version of Windows with several manufacturers announcing products and showcasing demos of the Windows 8 and Windows RT previews. The buzz around Windows RT was everywhere – on the show floor, in media coverage, and the numerous videos and images posted online. It is increasingly clear how the new Windows will influence the mobile computing market in the enterprise, home and entertainment spaces with smooth slick graphics, clean and intuitive UIs, and the connectivity and portability users have come to expect.

We were thrilled to showcase Windows RT on our OMAP4470 processor-based development platform that you can check out in this video from Engadget. With two ARM® Cortex-A9 cores, an SGX544 graphics processor and high speed dual-channel memory, the OMAP4470 is an excellent platform for Windows RT. This architecture delivers powerful graphics, fluid Webpage scrolling and snappy responsiveness as well as long battery life.

We are even more excited about the introduction of Toshiba’s OMAP-based Windows RT thin clamshell laptop and tablet with keyboard dock, designed in partnership with TI -  two sexy new products that we expect will be available when Windows RT launches. If you want a sneak-peek, this PCMagazine article has some photos and details on the new Toshiba products.

Computex 2012 was an amazing show that demonstrated how far the industry has progressed on Windows RT development in preparation for the launch. With so much on the horizon, I can’t wait to see what Computex Taipei 2013 has in store.
