Microsoft could offer the first taste of its next major iteration of the Windows client in early January 2011, sources close to the company claim.
Between January 6 - 9 the focus of the technology world will be on Las Vegas for the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Traditionally, the event was keynoted by Microsoft co-Founder Bill Gates, but since Gates retired, the software giantís Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer took over.
According to The NY Times, Ballmer will take the stage at CES 2011 to demonstrate a range of upcoming devices, planned for consumer availability throughout 2011 and beyond.
Whatís interesting is that sources with knowledge of the software giantís plans indicate that thereís a possibility for Windows 8 to make an appearance at next yearís CES.
