Owners of the Windows RT-based Surface and Surface 2 tablets will get an update sometime in the future that will include some,but not all, of the features that Microsoft plans to offer with Windows 10, but details about that update have yet to be revealed.
Windows RT is the version of Windows 8 that Microsoft launched in 2012 that was meant to run on devices with ARM-based processors. Only a few Windows RT-based products were ever released, and the most popular were Microsoft's Surface and Surface 2 tablets. In a statement sent to CNET, a spokesperson stated:
"Surface Pro 3 (and the entire Surface Pro lineup) will update to Windows 10. We are working on an update for [the Windows RT version of] Surface, which will have some of the functionality of Windows 10. More information to come."
Microsoft has not said if it will provide the same update to the small number of third-party Windows RT devices that were released in late 2012, such as the Dell XPS 10 and the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11, along with the more recently released Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.
