Sources predict the launch of Windwows 8 will happen in a couple of months.

Tech website The Next Web mentioned that Microsoft will be seen by the public come late February. Microsoft hasn’t picked an official date for the launch of their latest product but many are guessing it will happen early 2012. There are others who doubt the one rumor that Windows 8 might hit stores shelves by next year’s holiday season.

To get a glimpse of the workings of Windows 8, install the Developer Preview. However, this should be done in a clean install or virtual machine. Experts who already tested the new Windows said that it lacked several key features like an e-mail app.

Many anticipate the arrival of Windows 8 because of its redesigned user interface which Microsoft refers to as “Metro-style”. It can accommodate tablets and tough screens.

Last Tuesday, Microsoft offered an extended preview of its Windows 8 with Samsung's prototype tablet.

Microsoft’s announcements at the BUILD conference in Anaheim, California caused some buzz, prematurely heralding the downfall of Apple’s iPad. However, the Big Red indicated that they will remain committed to their “No Compromise” strategy of providing full-featured Windows OS to tablets.

In an effort to foster early development for the platform which is set to arrive next year, Microsoft gave the 5,000 attendees a prototype table that it co-developed with Samsung. The device, which is dubbed a Windows 8 Developer Preview, is a re-tooled version of Samsung’s Series 7. It is an Intel i5-based tablet that is packed with Internet Explorer 10, apps created by Microsoft interns, 1.6GHz processor, 11.6-inch screen, front and rear cameras, HDMI and USB ports, and microSD and SIM card slots.

Microsoft: Announcing Windows 8 on Tablet next Week

Written on September 09, 2011 by Adam Eve

0 person

Microsoft is said to showcase its Windows 8 on a Samsung tablet next week, during the BUILD developer's conference.

Microsoft’s Steven Sinofsky will allegedly show Windows 8 running on a Samsung tablet next week, in time with the BUILD developer conference in California from September 13 – 16.

One unnamed source specifies that this will be Samsung’s first collaboration with the Windows/Xbox giant in its hardware device division. Analysts believe that this collaboration is part of the South Korea-based company’s plan to withdraw from relying solely on Google’s Android OS.

However, Microsoft’s Windows 8 tablets are not expected to hit the shelves for another 12 months. And by that time, an array of Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablets will have invaded the market. Moreover, Apple will likely roll out its iPad 3. With the industry’s quick shift in focus to mobile computing, the Windows 8 will need a lot of catching up on its development — not to mention how it will perform on tablets after a year.

Regardless, it’s a no brainer that a lot of buzz surrounds Windows 8. Are you excited to see the upcoming Microsoft OS for tablets?

President of Windows and Windows Live, Steven Sinofsky, announced their planned improvements for Windows 8 in a blog post. The company’s major redesign of its flagship operating system is expected to have improved copying, moving, renaming and deleting files. Windows 8 will be designed to run on tablets, laptops and desktops with a home screen featuring optimized tiles for touchscreens.

Director of program management in Windows’ engineering team, Alex Simons, said in the blog post: “There are some pretty cluttered and confusing parts of the Windows 7 copy experience. For Windows 8, we want to make sure that using these core file management commands, which we collectively refer to as ‘copy jobs,’ is a great experience.”

That said, Windows 8 developers are creating one place to manage and monitor all copy jobs, offering people more control of copy operations.

Microsoft has finally demonstrated USB 3.0 compatibility for Windows 8 in their company's blog.

Microsoft has finally release a demo for their USB 3.0 compatibility for Windows 8. In the said company’s engineering blog, Windows team leader – Steven Sinofsky – pointed out the challenges in purchasing the new standard without compromising compatibility with existing hardware and software built for the USB 2.0 protocol. Microsoft worked to design a new USB software stack for the new controller, while retaining the existing software stack for older controllers.

Sinofsky worte: “Perhaps the most important aspect of USB 3.0 is the expectation that customers have of USB: it’s just USB3 so it should just work, right? Each and every USB device, low, full, high, and SuperSpeed, has to work in Windows 8. That’s our focus while also delivering the most robust and reliable USB stack.”

Check the video demonstration of USB 3.0 in Windows 8 after the break.
