Microsoft to launch its own Windows 8 tablet … WinTAB ?

There are reports floating arount that Microsoft may be on the verge of announcing a self-manufactured Windows 8 based tablet, at an event on June 18th, 3.30 PM in Los Angeles.

According to TheWrap, Microsoft’s new tablet will run on Windows RT, a version of Windows 8 that uses an ARM microprocessor.

Introducing a Microsoft-manufactured will mark the software giants foray into a new hardware category wich will be in direct competion with Apple’s iPad.

Microsoft has already created a billion dollar market with the Xbox … but had dropped its Courier tablet project …  so it will not be surprising if Microsoft actually introduces its own-manufactured Windows 8 tablet. In fact launching a “WinTAB” might actually be a great idea!

But then I guess we will have to wait for a couple of days to see what the announcement is actually about.
