We earlier reported that Microsoft Windows chief Steven sinofsky , demoed Windows 8 tablet pc’s at D9 conference . Eventually at the same time Microsoft showed off Windows 8 Technical preview at Computex 2011 where Microsoft’s hardware partners were expected.
Mike Angiulo, corporate vice president of Windows Planning, Hardware and PC Ecosystem at Microsoft, took this opportunity and gave an mind-blowing insight to “Windows 8” and how it works and its touch accessibility.These new Windows 8 devices works on both x86 and ARM-based architectures.
Microsoft takes NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments as their ARM-based manufactures.
A new mode called “always on, always connected” will be added as well. It will allow instant wake-up from sleep and keep the ARM tablets constantly connected to the web.
According to Microsoft :
“Our aim with ‘Windows 8’ is to make the user experience a natural extension of the device, from the time you turn on your PC through how you interact with the applications you know and love,” Angiulo said. “This represents a fundamental shift in Windows design that we haven’t attempted since the days of Windows 95, presenting huge opportunities for our hardware partners to innovate with new PC designs.”
Microsoft also announced Build , an event where we expect lots and lots of new features. We expect Windows 8 beta to be features at BUILD in September.
