Lightwave on phones, not on tablets.
Phone based renderfarms?

Not going to happen unless NewTek is rewriting / recompiling LW for the ARM platform / Qualcomm Snapdragon. Continuum is for Windows Universal Apps or converted x86 applications not for native x64 / x86 based applications. Moreover I doubt these CPUs have strong FPU to be anywhere close to Intel Core processor power.

Indeed. LW should be rewritten completely as a WUA. The chance this happens is very unlikely.

Do they offer a data plan for rendering? :)

I thought these devices would run x86 and x64 appz?
Then what's the point of ms releasing this if its another windows rt platform??

There is no point. Just like there was no point with the original Windows RT devices (with no support for desktop apps apart from the ones MS shipped with it)
