While Release Preview Windows 8 is available since yesterday, manufacturers are scrambling already at the gate to announce the first tablets compatible. According to Bloomberg, Asus, Acer and Toshiba are about to unveil models running on the next major OS from Microsoft. Acer and Toshiba will introduce two shelves equipped with ARM processors (Texas Instruments), while Asus will market products under Intel and others in the ARM.
This tablet Asus should also be offered with a detached keyboard like the current Transformer Pad. Especially, the Taiwanese brand has suggested, via a video broadcast at Computex, a next set of shelves could offer the dual-boot function, that is to say the ability to run Android or Windows on the same device. Of course, nothing is confirmed yet but the idea is to stress. First answers expected next week.
