    MS prepares to battle IPad with Samsung Tablets


    According to a Korean newspaper, the pair are due to announce the collaboration at Microsoft’s Build conference in California next week.

    The hardware will run a version of Windows 8, according to the Korea Economic Daily, which cited an industry source.

    "This new product manufactured by Samsung will be the company's first collaboration with Microsoft in its hardware devices," the source reportedly said.

    Microsoft and Samsung declined to comment on the report.

    Microsoft has already trailed Windows 8 ahead of the conference, and documents leaked in June suggested a version for tablets, optimised for low-power ARM processors, was in development. Such a strategy would be in contrast to Apple, which develops iOS mobile operating system for both tablets and smartphones, with its desktop operating system, OSX, separate.

    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.
