Can’t get Windows 8 off your mind? Want to mess around with it and see the new features? Worry no more because at 8PM (Pacific Time) tonight, you will be able to download a copy of the Windows Developer Preview to your 32- or 64-bit x86 machine (no activation required) from dev.windows.com. It is recommended that you make the change on a separate partition (or a spare machine altogether) in order to prevent unforeseen conflicts, and we’d also suggest having a stiff glass of patience waiting nearby. Something tells us Redmond’s servers are going to be hammered.
It appears that may soon get a look at Microsoft’s first Windows 8 tablet.
Korea Economic Daily reports that Samsung and Microsoft will be announcing their brand new tablet next week at Microsoft’s BUILD conference. It is said that the device will be running on a quad-core ARM processor.
We all got hints of a Windows 8 tablet in May when Steve Ballmer accidentally gave details on what the company was planning for the year when saying, “As we progress through the year, you ought to expect to hear a lot about Windows 8. Windows 8 slates, tablets, PCs, a variety of different form factors.”
Not too much is known about the upcoming tablet but it will surely pack a punch.
