HP to focus on Intel-based Windows 8 tablets, skip ARM-based Windows RT tablets

Bloomberg reports that HP has decided to focus on building Intel-based Windows 8 tablets and not release an ARM-based tablet running Windows RT. HP was one of the vendors given early access to the Windows RT platform by Microsoft. As fewer manufacturers commit to Windows RT, more pressure is being put on Microsoft's Surface tablet to be successful. If Microsoft ends up being the only company with a first-tier Windows RT tablet, it will make any chance of successfully competing against Apple almost impossible.
