Rumer is it’s a tablet to be made by Microsoft, like the XBox. http://mashable.com/2012/06/14/microsoft-is-launching-an-ipad-killer-report/
This just in from Mashable:
It’s hard to recall another Microsoft invitation like this one. No graphics, no details, no leaks. It sounds, well, almost Apple-esque in its urgency and stringent requirements and rules:
This is a non-transferrable invitation, however, if you would like to send your local colleague in your place, please submit that name and it will be reviewed. If you would like to bring a photographer please register that person as your additional guest. Please note – still photography and video will be limited.
So what does Microsoft have up its sleeve?
The article http://mashable.com/2012/06/14/microsoft-media-event-june-18/ goes on to speculate. I wonder if Microsoft has read my blog and is releasing a new MS Phone with Win8 that also works as a reasonable PC when docked to keyboard and screen. That would be a massive explosion before the 3Q2012 tablet onslaught. If they did that they might even impact the upcoming Apple release.
