Windows 8 created quite a stir when it was demoed at the All Things D conference a while back. However the details were really vague, the company promised that they will reveal more stuff at the BUILD conference that is set to get underway in September.
Now, at the TechED meet going on at New Zealand, Microsoft has given the people there a sneak preview of not one, but two tablets and has promised the devs that they will be giving out a ARM based Quad core tablet in an event in the near future. Does that mean the BUILD conference ? Hoping so.
Windows 8 is the company’s real effort at entering the ever burgeoning tablet market. Commercially said to arrive by mid 2012, the product is under active development and a lot of questions are yet to be answered. Hope MS comes up with good enough answers at the upcoming BUILD conference and certainly, the giving away is a smart way of getting the platform ready with a plethora of apps, but it is nothing new.
