We’re sure that Microsoft upset many of its OEM partners when they revealed the Surface tablet. However not all is lost as Microsoft does not plan to monopolize the Windows RT market and according to the Unwired View, other Windows RT tablet manufacturers we can expect to see products from includes ASUS, Toshiba, Samsung and Lenovo. Now reportedly HP was poised to manufacture Windows RT tablets too, but apparently passed on the opportunity, opening up the speculation that Dell could be taking its place. However when asked by Business Insider’s Julie Bort to confirm the speculation, Dell instead replied with a rather vague answer. The computer manufacturer replied that they could only confirm that they are working on a Windows-based tablet for the future, although no specs or possible release dates were given. This seems to be in line with reports earlier this month that Dell would be releasing Windows-based tablets, but at this point in time, the predicted end of the year release is up in the air at the moment.
