IT Solutions | Windows 8 Tablet to be out soon?
Do you have a tablet that you already enjoy (iPad or Android)? Or are you waiting on the much-anticipated Windows 8 tablet? According to the http://news.yahoo.com/microsoft-windows-8-tablet-unveiling-said-slated-monday-183444492.html website, you may not have to wait much longer. Microsoft has indicated that it will be making a major announcement this coming Monday, June 18, that many believe will be the opening for the Windows 8 tablet.
The Windows 8 Consumer Preview is already available for download and trial, so if you want a “sneak peak”, you can take a look at it. Not all of the functionality is there yet, as it is just a pre-release of the Operating System, but it does look nice. I have tried it myself and it takes a little getting used to, as there is no “Start” menu that previous Windows Operating Systems have all had. The video that you can browse does give some basics on moving around the new system, so it is well worth the few minutes watching the video.
As far as tablets go, I am sure that Microsoft is going to be giving the current tablets on the market a run for their money, as the Metro interface introduced with Windows 8 brings dynamic content to the home screen. This means you won’t need to flip through apps to see the most recent things happening. For instance, you automatically see you have new E-mails available, without even needing to open the mail app to view. You can also tell at a glance other updates that are happening as they happen, so there won’t be a need to open the app unless you want to see the full content.
So what about you? Do you have an iPad or Android and really love it? Or do you want to get the new Windows 8 tablet at the first opportunity available?
