Microsoft plans to break into the tablet market Monday, reportedly as a software vendor and as a hardware vendor. This marks the first self-branded Microsoft tablet, which is supposed to directly compete with Apple’s iPad and Google’s Android tablets. Microsoft will be holding a press conference in Los Angeles on Monday the 18th, and while the exact focus of the press conference has not been disclosed, reports have stated that Microsoft plans to unveil several Windows 8 tablets.
The fact that this press conference comes just days before the Windows Phone Developer Summit makes this press release a bit more interesting. What else do you think is in store for us this coming Monday?
