Microsoft tablets to launch with Windows 8 at CES 2011

New OS to get partnered with new tablets at CES 2011

Microsoft is preparing to launch a range of tablet devices running a brand new Windows 8 OS at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show 2011, new reports from the New York Times suggests

The New York Times quotes an unnamed source in a report declaring the arrival of Windows 8 on own-branded Microsoft tablets as well as tablet devices from both Samsung and Dell. Rumours have surrounded the arrival of Windows 8 following criticism to the strength of Windows 7 as a touchscreen tablet user interface.

Whilst these comments have yet to be officially confirmed or denied by Microsoft and the other mooted tablet providers, the Samsung branded device has been described by another NYT source as: "similar in size and shape to the Apple iPad, although it is not as thin.”

The unnamed loudmouth went on to add: "It also includes a unique and slick keyboard that slides out from below for easy typing."
