Microsoft to release own-brand Windows 8 tablet by end of 2012?

Posted on Wednesday, June 08 2011 @ 19:08:42 CEST by


Sources from Taiwan's upstream supply chain confided to DigiTimes that Microsoft is considering to launch an own-brand Windows 8 tablet computer by the end of next year. According to the report, this device would be designed in cooperation with Texas Instruments and Taiwan-based OEMs/ODMs.
Although Microsoft has been seeking business opportunities outside of PC-related markets and is aggressively launching own-brand products, Xbox 360 is currently the only own-brand product line that Microsoft has achieved success, while Zune media player, Kin smartphone and own-brand TVs all had unsatisfactory performance. However, Microsoft is still considering to launch an own-brand tablet PC and is proceeding on a low profile, the sources noted.

The sources pointed out that despite the plans to launch its own-brand tablet PC, Microsoft will continue to push its IDP plans for Windows 8.
