Windows 8, Coming next Year
Microsoft appears to be gearing up for some good deals, as the company reveals that the Windows 8 will be available some time next year.
Microsoft’s top man, Steve Ballmer, told his audience during the company’s developer’s forum in Tokyo yesterday that the next version of Windows operating system will be released some time next year. He even added that people might hear more of Windows 8 in the coming days.
“As we progress through the year, you ought to expect to hear a lot about Windows 8. Windows 8 slates, tablets, PCs, a variety of different form factors.”
Steve Ballmer also talked about Microsoft’s intention to improve PC’s user interface by adding voice, vision or even touch to help boost the user experience.
“The form factor of the devices that we all use will continue to change. I think there will be a day in the future where it will be hard to distinguish a phone from a slate, from a PC. You literally will have displays that become paper thin and very easy to fold out form your phone. And at the same time, you’re going to get more and more PC-like capabilities in smaller form factor devices.”
The Microsoft CEO also mentioned the upcoming Windows Phone 7 announcements scheduled for today.
” … that information will be forthcoming, including some of the particulars about who is going to be building Windows Phones, and which carriers will be offering them here in Japan.”
It appears that Microsoft is preparing sweet treats for its customers this year. So just keep it posted here on GADG for more Microsoft updates.View Article Source »
