Microsoft will launch its own tablet device next week, entering the booming slate market without the help of a separate hardware manufacturer, it has been claimed.
The company has promised to make a major announcement at an event on Monday, 18 June said to be related to its tablet strategy. Sources close to the matter say Microsoft will unveil an own-brand iPad rival, The Wrap reports.
Whisperers reckon Microsoft's forthcoming fondleslab will front Windows RT, the version of Windows 8 coded to run on Arm microprocessors.
