The TechED2011 event at New Zealand has been a happening place and Microsoft has been one of the main actors showcasing what their next generation Windows is going to be like along with a number of devices that would be running on this OS. They have even displayed their quad-core Windows tablet at the event.
Jeff Johnson from Microsoft only went on to say that the tablet would be given away at an event that is shortly scheduled and nothing much else.
By guesswork one can only think the BUILD 2011 event to be held in September was maybe the one he was hinting at. It is expected that at this event there would also be the first official public preview of Windows 8.
Making a tablet that would have four Intel core processor in it may not be possible. It is more probable that the device would hold an AMD APU. There was rumor that was doing the rounds of the NVIDIA Kal El quad core processor coming into the market at about the same time as the tablet. Speculation of this device being based on this processor holds more ground given the fact that Windows 8 is known to be compatible for the ARM hardware.
“Jetstream has worked extensively with each new Microsoft Operating system long before it is released. We’ve been building applications on Windows 7 since early betas. By the time most companies begin development on applications for a new operating system, we’ve been using it daily for months. We’ve learned the pitfalls, what works, and most importantly what does not.”
It will be only after its official launch that the exact specifications of the device will be known. There will, however, be a few lucky ones who get this device for free before then.
