A published report on Friday says that Microsoft is considering using its Windows RT OS on a series of phablets. This was disclosed during Microsoft's Financial Analysts Meeting on Thursday in response to a question from someone attending. Microsoft's Terry Myerson responded to a question about the future of the ARM based platform used on the Microsoft Surface RT.
Myerson, who is the chief of the Redmond based firm's OS division, didn't exactly mention the phablet niche by name. First, he praised the battery life on ARM based devices. Then, he said that as phones extend into tablets, Microsoft will offer Windows ARM tablets in the future. The comment comes as Nokia prepares to introduce the Nokia Lumia 1520, the first Windows Phone phablet. Another picture of the device was discovered earlier Friday.
