Indiscriminately, one of the most awaited OSes– Windows 8– is coming in October this year and of course, tech-savvies are more likely to see the Microsoft’s innovation. A new puzzled has been added in this chapter, when Samsung posted an image of Windows 8 Tablet on one of its Facebook page with caption, elaborating a IFA 2012 trade show starting from Friday of this week.
It’s clear from the picture that Samsung is going to wrap off its new Windows 8 hybrid Tablet at the IFA 2012 trade show in Berlin. On its Facebook page, the company demonstrated a tagline “Ready to be smart”. Besides, it also wrote for its Facebook followers “Don’t worry, it’s just around the corner…”
The image shows a Tablet running on Windows 8 platform and behind the Tablet, we can easily see a detachable keyboard. The company believes that IFA 2012, a consumer electronics trade show, will one of the best platform to show off the product.
The design (posted on the Facebook page) seems similar to the series 5 transformer prototype, which was showcased by Samsung at Computex in June of this year. The devices unveiled at the Computex also featured brushed metal backing, Stylus port and rounded edges along with keyboard and touch pad.
If both are the same product, then the upcoming Tablet should be equipped with Intel Chip, Windows 8 OS (not Windows RT version), an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front facing camera and the battery having 10 hrs of wake-up.
Anyway, now Samsung is close of unveiling its first consumers Windows 8 product. Last week, the company posted a video on YouTube, showing glimpses of a sleek and the thin looking device. See the video for details:
Undoubtedly, the video shows a lot of animations which are centric to Leonardo Da Vinci’s themes— gears and clocks along with rolling and combing of black cubes. However, the video isn’t depicting any clues about the product nor specification.
It’s pretty clear that Samsung is not only the player which is going to launch Windows 8 powered Tablet— a lineup of Windows 8 powered Tablet is being launched by different vendors including HP, Lenovo, Acer and more. Microsoft’s Surface Tablet could itself be a big hurdle for Samsung Windows 8 powered Tablet. Anyway, we will have to wait until IFA event in order to know what Samsung is actually going to launch.
