There is an All Things Digital D9 conference coming up next month which apparently will mark the arrival of Microsoft's new tablet OS. Steven Sinofsky, President, Windows and Windows Live Division, could be demonstrating the key aspects of the OS and at the same time give us some idea about what to expect.
Interestingly, this is not the first time that rumors about Windows' newest iteration are making rounds on the internet. Previously, some leaked UI screenshots of the Windows 8's desktop version were spotted, but this is the first time that we're looking at a tablet edition of the OS.
A few years ago, Windows based tablets weren't as rare as they are now. Tablets like the iPad and other Android and webOS-based tablets have certainly driven them out in a big way. But could this new set of Windows based tablets pave the way for what looks like a year of tablets? Well, given the market-share of Microsoft Windows, we think it could be quite a catch, provided the tablets are priced appropriately. Let's hope for a good tablet, because we Indians are very much comfortable with Windows' usability.
