Samsung-made Windows 8 tablet leaks out ahead of Microsoft's Build keynote

Samsung-made Windows 8 tablet leaks out ahead of Microsoft's Build keynote
Microsoft’s Build keynote kicks off in mere hours and it is expected to bring more details about Windows 8 - a redesigned version of Microsoft’s platform which is moving one step closer to uniting different devices under its umbrella. And the first device to already leak out is this Samsung-made Windows 8 tablet PC, which by all looks is the very one Microsoft plans to give out to those attending the event. The picture you see below leaked out on Chinese microblogging service Weibo and looks credible.

There’s really little we can make out of this picture - one possibility is that the screen sports a 16:9 aspect ratio, but we wouldn’t pledge about that. Previously, rumors pointed out that this demo tablet will feature a quad-core processor and possibly an ultra-low voltage part. At least one version of the tablet is expected to run on Intel hardware. 

Windows 8 will be optimized to support both Intel/AMD chips and ARM-based silicon, a new feature for an operating system by Microsoft.
