Lenovo prepping Windows 8 tablet: reports
When Windows 8 finally launches – most likely later this year – it may be immediately available on more than just traditional laptops and desktops.
Reports suggest Lenovo is going to have a tablet running Microsoft’s next major operating system at the time of the OS’s release.
When can we expect Windows 8? Most likely in the fall of 2012, reports suggest. That would release it just in time for the holiday rush, but right after lucrative the back-to-school season.
Windows 8 will sport some major changes, with some saying it will be the next Windows Vista, which was as successful as the Leafs’ playoff run in recent years.
One major change users will notice is the lack of a Start button, a feature first introduced on Windows 95.
The new operating system will also feature a new interface, known as ‘Metro.’ It’s similar to the active tiles we’ve seen on Windows Phone 7 - but never really caught on in terms of popularity.
