We all know that Microsoft’s Windows 8 line is going to be a direct tablet competitor. That’s always been their goal, even though they are late to the game. But remember, they are bringing a full OS (and not a mobile OS) to the table. And here’s a glimpse of a quad core slate they displayed at TechEd 2011 NZ.
So we’re looking at something around the 10” screen size and a matte finish. Granted not a lot more but remember, we’re looking at a full OS on what is otherwise a typical looking slate…except with a quad core CPU of course. And since the hardware is in line with other slates you can expect a price point to match. Added to this is that Microsoft said that it will be giving these away to attendees at an upcoming MS event (likely Build).
W8 can’t come soon enough…
