Hewlett-Packard to Shun ARM at Debut of Microsoft Windows 8

Hewlett-Packard Co. said it will hold off selling tablets based on ARM Holdings Plc technology when the next version of Microsoft Corp.’s Windows operating system debuts later this year.

Hewlett-Packard instead will focus on so-called x86 chips, such as those made by Intel Corp., said Marlene Somsak, a spokeswoman for Palo Alto, California-based Hewlett-Packard.
