The BUILD Conference that will be happening next Tuesday has been touted by certain quarters that Microsoft will be introducing a yet unreleased tablet device that will be powered by their spanking new Windows 8 operating system. This particular tablet is said to be a device that was developed from the hardware alliance between Microsoft and Samsung. Hopefully you won’t see Apple’s lawyers come knocking on the front door, asking for Samsung or Microsoft to stop selling said tablet simply because a few patents were allegedly violated.
It seems that Microsoft does have big plans for Windows 8, where this operating system will feature a tablet-friendly nature that is in line with its desktop experience vision for the future. There are reports that claim Microsoft will give out Windows 8 powered tablets to attendees at the conference, which leads us to believe that they took a page out of Samsung’s books who issued Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets to folks who were at Google’s I/O developer conference.
No idea on what kind of hardware the new tablet packs, but it is rumored to be ARM powered, while boasting a bunch of sensors that will certainly jive with Windows 8 coding.RELATED
