Samsung rumoured to reveal first Windows 8 tablet next week
Flight to safety?
According to Korea Economic Daily, the tablet will be revealed at Microsoft's BUILD developers' conference next week.
"This new product manufactured by Samsung will be the company's first collaboration with Microsoft [over Windows 8] in its hardware devices," it's claimed.
Of course, Samsung has a good working relationship with Microsoft, being a lead OEM with Windows Phone 7, as well as through its PC business.
Aside from the ramifications of Google's acquisition of Motorola, Samsung is also under pressure from Apple in terms of various hardware-related lawsuits.
