Samsung's Windows 8 tablet has been snapped, ahead of Microsoft's Build conference that kicks off in Anaheim, California in just a few hours.
The conference is for developers and we'vethat attendees would receive a Samsung Windows 8 tablet, to take home and tinker with, the lucky blighters.
We're expecting to hear more about the titillating tablet once the conference commences, when we should get a deluge of information on Windows 8, and hopefully on this tablet too. But this early snap, picked up by Microsoft-News.com is enough to pique our curiosity.
Okay, admittedly you can't see much -- we wouldn't even like to guess at the size of the thing. And we've no idea whether this tablet will ever hit our shelves or whether this is just a prototype for developers to toy with.
But we're keen to see whether Windows 8 makes a compelling operating system for tablets -- if developers take to this Samsung slate, then by the time Windows 8 launches Microsoft might have an app-filled tablet to rival the iPad and Honeycomb devices.
We've already seen a fair bit of Windows 8, and we know that it'll pack a tile-like interface, built for touchscreen devices. It's going to have an, will run on both desktop PCs and tablets and .
We're fans of theinterface, with its swooping transitions and slick presentation, we just wish it had more apps. Fingers crossed Windows 8 changes all that.
