Q: Can I run Windows RT on an existing ARM based device such as a Blackberry Playbook, Xoom, Samsung Tab, Acer Iconia Tab or Apple iPad?

A: Windows 8 does not support processor architecture’s based on ARM which is in your Tablet. You need an Intel or AMD x64 or x86 processor in order to evaluate the Windows 8.

Microsoft has worked with partners to release devices based on ARM. Those will come preloaded with Windows RT.

Here is a list of Tablets that support Windows RT:
