Microsoft restrict chipmakers for tablet computers

Microsoft have told chipmakers who want to use the upcoming version of Windows for tablet computers to work with only one manufacturer, to speed up the delivery. Bloomberg claim that people close to the companies have detailed the information.

Microsoft CEO: Steve Ballmer - offering incentives for partners

Chipmakers who agree to Microsoft’s terms will get incentives in exchange for the restrictions which will tie a single chipmaker to one tablet design. This specific program is only going to relate to the next version of Windows which is being made for mobile computers. The desktop version will have no limits, leaving partners free to work as they please.

KitGuru says: Microsoft have not yet issued an official statement regarding the restriction incentives.
