Microsoft to Beat Apple to the Punch by Releasing Slate Tablet PC Tonight?


Microsoft has a Slate/PC, operating Microsoft tool smartly in advance of Apple’s rumored iSlate/Tablet, which is expected to be unveiled on January 27th, in Apple’s mega event to be held at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco


But Kara Swisher of All Things D thinks otherwise. According to her sources, Microsoft is going to showoff some multitouch demo’s on the newly released HP TouchSmart tm2 Tablet PC, running windows 7.

Of course we’ll all like Microsoft to stir things a bit by announcing the Courier Tablet PC which they have been rumored to be working on with HP. For all this and more, we all will have to wait for Steve Ballmer’s keynote to see what he has up his sleeve. The keynote will be streamed LIVE tonight from Las Vegast at 18.30 PST (Pacific Standard Time).
