It looks like Microsoft has a lot to announce at the CES 2011. Bloomberg reports that Microsoft is said to announce Windows for ARM CPU based devices. Windows for ARM would directly target Android on Mobile devices like tablets.

The announcement of Windows for ARM is expected during the CES 2011 show on January 5th, but do not expect any products soon. According to AllThingsD there is still a lot of work to do including time consuming driver development.

On the other hand Windows Mobile 7 is running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU that has an ARM based instruction set. Many including me have called for Microsoft to take the new Windows Phone 7 as basis for a Tablet and Mobile OS to compete with Android and Apple. Let's hope Microsoft went this route and not shoehorning the PC OS Windows 7 onto low power mobile devices.

Microsoft is also supposed to unveil a new range of Windows Tablets at the CES 2011.

The CES 2011 starting on Jan. 6th will be featuring iPad killing Tablets, new 4G smartphones, new 3D TVs, wireless everything and e-Cars. We will provide full coverage including live reports from the CES show floor. Read the latest CES 2011 News.
