Microsoft, Samsung may unveil first Windows 8 tablet next week
The first Windows 8 tablet will reportedly be unveiled next week by Samsung and Microsoft. The news originates from the Korea Economic Daily, which the AFP news service quotes as saying the Windows 8 tablet from Samsung will be shown at Microsoft’s BUILD conference for developers in Anaheim Sept. 13-16.
While Windows 8 isn't expected until next year, Microsoft has confirmed that it will reveal more details about Windows 8 at BUILD, and we've known for some time it will have a user interface optimized for tablets. Windows 8 will also be the first version of the world’s most widely used operating system to run on ARM chips, which power the iPad.
