It seems that Microsoft will be making an announcement today after the bell is rung on Wall St. at 3:30. Many sites are reporting that the announcement will be the releasing of the first Windows 8 tablet designed by MS. The thought process behind this is MS recently purchased a $300m stake in Barnes and Nobles and the lack of partners willing to jump on the opportunity.
Speculation about the Los Angeles media event has ranged from an unveiling of a new tablet computer that uses low-power chips to a new system that will use an upcoming version of Windows to help people access TV shows and movies across a range of devices."
"The Windows 8 system is expected to be released in September or October, in time for devices that will ship for the holiday season. Windows 8 is considered to be the biggest change in decades to the widely used operating system from Microsoft Corp. It has been designed so that it can run desktop, laptop and tablet computers, giving PC makers a better chance of competing with Apple Inc.'s iPad."
