    Steve Ballmer to tease Windows 8 at CES keynote


    Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is set to take to the stage tomorrow for the opening keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

    Ballmer will detail a number of new announcements related to Windows Phone, Xbox and Windows. The main announcement will be related to Windows running on ARM chips. According to sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans, the software giant is planning to show off a function of Windows 8 for the first time.

    Microsoft originally demonstrated Windows multi-touch functionalities at the All Things Digital conference on May 27, 2008. The software maker only teased the touch functionality of Windows 7 and did not reveal the UI or further details until the 2008 Professional Developers Conference in late October, 2008. Microsoft is believed to be planning a similar strategy for Windows 8. Ballmer will show off limited Windows 8 functionality, believed to be related to Microsoft’s Slate plans, and a full Windows 8 unveil will come later at PDC 2011.

    TechFlash reports that ARM chip manufacturers Nvidia, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments have all signed-up to produce processors for Windows 8 systems. Ballmer isn’t likely to refer directly to Windows 8 but will say “the next version of Windows”. WinRumors previously reported that Microsoft would not show off Windows 8. This remains unchanged as Microsoft will not show off the new dual UI of Windows 8.
