Somewhere in LA, Microsoft is going to announce something big later today. Rumors are swirling, but most major tech websites expect Microsoft’s big announcement to be a Windows 8 tablet manufactured by the company itself.
Some suspect the tablet will be running Windows 8 RT, which is a streamlined version of Microsoft’s upcoming operating system. Others believe it will be an e-reader, as various sources initially indicated that Barnes&Noble would be attending the event (this has recently proven to be false).
Ultimately, nobody can say for certain what Microsoft has up its sleeve until we see the announcement ourselves at 3:30PM Pacific time this afternoon (June 18th).
As soon as the news is announced WindowsTabletReviews.net will have complete coverage of… whatever it is.
Microsoft’s mysterious event is creating Apple-like levels of hype. Instead of disclosing exactly where the event will be held, Microsoft simply sent out a press release last Thursday that said a big event would be taking place in LA on June 18th. No location nor specifics were announced, setting off a firestorm of buzz and anticipation.
Will Microsoft announce a cool new Windows 8 tablet? Or are they going to continue pushing their Xbox 360-centered media expansion? All that’s left to do is wait!
