Additional details on Windows 8 are expected this week, and it appears that they won’t all come from the same source.
Steven Sinofsky, President, Windows and Windows Live Division will take the stage at the All Things Digital D9 Conference, and he’ll reportedly demo Windows 8 for Tablet PCs.
Microsoft has yet to confirm the Windows 8 slate demonstration at D9, but according to third-party sources, this will be the gist of Sinofsky’s presentation.
At the same time, another big technology event will open its doors to visitors this week, namely Computex, Taipei.
Computex is scheduled to kick off tomorrow, May 31st, and will close on June 4th, 2011. Microsoft has a presence at the conference in Taipei, and there will also be a top executive at the event.
Steve Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President, Original Equipment Manufacturer Division is reported to be attending Computex this year.
Since Computex is essentially focused on hardware, it only makes sense for Guggenheimer, who deals with Microsoft’s OEM partners to also be present at the conference.
I have received word that Microsoft has planned something quite interesting for an event at the Taipei conference later this week.
Personally, I expect more information on Windows 8, the next major version of Windows, to be offered at Computex – if not by the software giant, then by the company’s partners that are scheduled to unveil new product.
