Windows 8 Tablet from Samsung gets unveiled next Week

Microsoft is supposed to unveil the first Windows 8 Tablet at the Build Developer conference next week. The question is though when it goes on sale.

Several reports appeared today about the first Windows 8 Tablet. The Korean Economics Times reports that Samsung has partnered with Microsoft to make the first Windows 8 Tablet. The new Windows Tablet will be already unveiled at the Build developer conference next week (September 13-16). ThisIsMyNext reports that developers attending the conference might get one for free. This still does not confirm that Microsoft is actually ready to launch the Windows 8 Tablet this year. Windows 8 OS is supposed to launch late 2012. There have been rumors that Microsoft will release the tablet version earlier. It would be good for them, as they are really late in the game this time.

It is of course not the first time. There has been a Tablet wave a decade ago. Back then, Microsoft actually led the tablet segment, but it never caught on.

I like what I have seen from Windows 8 so far. In general I find the Windows Phone 7 OS UI an interesting approach. Microsoft still has to create a bigger eco system to really compete with iOS and Android. The next wave of Mango devices should get some increased market share. If Windows 8 Tablets would launch this year, Microsoft finally could compete for market share in this segment as well.
