Rumor: Windows 8 Tablet UI demo set for June? | WinRumorsMicrosoft may be preparing to demonstrate its Windows 8 Tablet UI as early as June, according to reports on Monday.
A source, who allegedly has knowledge of Microsoft’s plans, spoke to Business Insider and claims that the company is taking a more Apple-like approach to interface design in Windows 8. Microsoft “will also be using concepts from the “Metro” interface developed for Windows Phone 7″ says Business Insider. The report isn’t as far fetched as it might seem. Microsoft has a habit of introducing new technologies at the Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital Conference, which will run from May 31 to June 2 this year. Bill Gates introduced Microsoft’s Surface computer in 2007 and the company demonstrated Windows 7 multitouch in 2008. It’s possible that Microsoft might be planning to demonstrate a technology preview of Windows 8 Tablets at the conference this year.
