Microsoft to Reveal New iPad Rival on Monday
Exactly one week removed from the kickoff of WWDC and Apple's tantalizing tease of iOS 6, Microsoft will capture the tech limelight and reveal the newest slate of tablets that will challenge the iconic iPad in the rapidly growing tablet computer market.
According to sources speaking with All Things D
, a "major Microsoft announcement" is coming Monday, June 18th at the software giant's media event in Los Angeles. Members of the press have already been invited and we're told that a significant product/software reveal will occur at that time.
The inside track maintains that Microsoft will roll out the red carpet for new ARM-based tablets running Windows RT. "After months of being secretive about its work to bring Windows 8 to ARM-based tablets, Microsoft is about ready to raise the veil," the trusted digital publication reports.
For now, Microsoft will only confirm the L.A. event itself and not the details of the presentation or any hardware or software to be demonstrated. We will keep our eyes and ears peeled as this story develops and bring you the latest developments as they unfold.
