Microsoft to preview Windows 8 tablet edition next week at two events
There are a few tech events scheduled for next week - the All Things D D9 conference, and Computex 2011 in Taipei. We already heard that the tablet Windows 8 will be demoed at the D9 conference, but Microsoft is allegedly demonstrating at both. Steven Sinofsky, Microsoft's Windows President, will be broadcasting from Rancho Palos Verdes, California, and VP Steve Gugenheimer will be the main man in Taiwan.
The Computex event traditionally features Original Design Manufacturers (ODM), which produce the computers and other gear for HP, Dell and the like, which slap their brands on them, so rumor has it that Asian manufacturers are having first dibs at the next Windows version, heading to a tablet near you.
