(PALO ALTO, Calif.) -- Microsoft is slated to present its new Windows 8 tablet operating system next week, according to published reports.
Microsoft has been late on adapting their operating system to small, hand-held devices like Apple's ubiquitous iPad. An announcement of the corporation's new system would likely spark intense consumer interest.
Microsoft's competitors, including the iPad and Google's Android, use ARM Holdings Plc-based technology. Microsoft has reportedly adapted a similar chip with the Nvidia Corporation.
