Dell Tablet Roadmap Hints at Windows 8 In 2012
Microsoft [MSFT] could begin using Window 8 on tablets as early as the first quarter of 2012 although a number of people have questioned if 1Q 2012 is just a bit too soon.Android Central managed to get hold of a roadmap from Dell about which tablets are being released over the coming year.
Microsoft may have started development of Windows 8 before Windows 7 launched and perhaps Microsoft is looking at a whole new rewrite of the OS to make it compatible with desktop as well as having a specific tablet edition available. We do look forwards to CES 2012 as we believe we’ll see the tablet competition heat up even more.
Also remember that we could be looking at unveiling dates here in that MIcrosoft could announced Windows 8 but not deliver it for another 8 to 12 months.
