Microsoft Reportedly to Unveil Windows Tablet Next Week

The hottest rumor in tech today is the talk that Microsoft will unveil its long awaited Windows tablet next week.

Next Monday, June 18th – exactly one week after Apple kicked off WWDC and teased iOS 6 – Microsoft will reportedly unveil its challenge to the iPad.

The ARM-based tablets running Windows RT have been talked about for months. For the time being, however, Microsoft will only call Monday an occasion for a “major Microsoft announcement.”

From All Things D:

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 company has scheduled an event on Monday in Los Angeles where it is expected to show devices running the software as well as highlight some of the kinds of programs and services that will run on the products, according to sources outside the company.

Mobile Marketing Watch will have all the news on Monday as the software giant rolls out the red carpet for its long-awaited iPad rival.
