Microsoft may come out with its own tablet
There is widespread speculation regarding Microsoft's media event scheduled for tomorrow, and most techies believe the software giant might release a tablet
Microsoft has generated a lot of speculation with its media event scheduled tomorrow.
There is talk that the software giant is coming out with a new tablet, and the device is being developed in conjunction with Barnes & Noble, according to a TechCrunch report. Other sources also say that Xbox streaming could be something that Microsoft may be looking into.
If the report is to be believed, then Microsoft's tablet would be aimed at Amazon's Kindle Fire, rather than the iPad. Amazon and Barnes & Noble have been competing for content and customers for years, and Amazon's Kindle Fire has become quite popular.
Microsoft and Barnes & Noble announced a partnership in April which saw Microsoft invest $300 million in a new Barnes & Noble subsidiary that would focus on Barnes & Noble's Nook digital and college businesses. Barnes & Noble also agreed to load its Nook digital bookstore with Windows 8.
