Monday's "Big Microsoft announcement" rumor roundup

Posted: , posted by Scott H.

Tags :

Microsoft is throwing a party for the media Monday, and while early reports suggested that it will somehow be related to Windows RT tablets, the rumors are now flying hot and heavy as to exactly what Microsoft will announce. Some of the rumors have started due to the timing (Microsoft has a lot of deals in the works right now), while others have been inspired by the location – it’s going to be in Hollywood, so does that mean it will be media-related?

There are several claims that Microsoft may get into the hardware business one way or another floating around - we’ve also caught whiff of a few folks who are claiming inside information, but they can’t all be right so some of them must simply be people talking out their… "guesses". Almost any of them would make for an exciting Monday event, so check them out and let us know which ones you think are the most likely in the comments below!

I hope they put a file manager and USB file transfer and stuff in Windows 8 for mobile. That'd be AWESOME.

File Browser is not necessary. iPad works fine without file browser and I believe Windows RT will do too.

I think the name 'Windows Sl8' for the tablet would be brillitant, it integrates the name of 'windows 8' and 'slate' together seamlessly!

I think it's going to be an announcement of:

1. The acquisition of either AOL (just spent billions for AOL's pattens) or Yahoo!
2. Details of Windows Phone 8
3. If it is a tablet, a joint venture with Barnes & Noble to make an Xbox Live Entertainment Tablet.

Very Excited....Now people will see a real announcement from Tech giants...And I am pretty sure that our Microsoft will be pretty clear on what they gonna offer and bring rather than saying a new OS with new 200 features and it is gonna change everything or something like that. Lolzzzzzzzzzzzz
