Yes, there'll be two "flavours" of Windows 8 tablets. One with an Intel CPU, and the other with an ARM CPU. I imagine the ARM version will probably have better battery life, but the Intel version will be able to run existing Windows apps, and that could well be the key selling point. A practical alternative for people who want a tablet, but need Windows-only software.
