With the Honeycomb tablet onslaught growing by the day, Microsoft’s tablet offerings are looking more and more irrelevant. That may soon change however, if the latest rumours surrounding the release of Windows 8 prove true.
Microsoft have announced that their annual Professional Developers Conference is to take place from September 13th to September 16th, and with it the growing possibility that Windows 8 will be revealed.
As well as giving the desktop OS a fresh lick of paint, Windows 8 is also expected to be the first time Microsoft build an operating system with a focus on tablet devices. With Apple’s iPad range as popular as ever and more and more Honeycomb tablets set to hit the market before the summer is out, that September Windows 8 launch, giving Microsoft breathing space to get the OS out the door by early 2012, seems a sensible move.
