Microsoft makes another tablet tease pre-event

Jun 18, 2012

Today while in wait before the Microsoft "Major Announcement" media event began, the screens up front showed no less than what we may well have called early on: tablets. The sounds of Gotye brought on bright shapes and clear 16:9 ratios in rectangles pushing up and down the screen at Milk Studios as we awaited what we've been tipped (before the event) would be either a Windows 8 Surface device or a Windows RT tablet. It's that or a new Xbox handheld, ladies and gentlemen.

We're seeing screens with one solid rectangle and one dotted-line rectangle, one next to the other. Either this is a dual-screen tablet (probably not) or we're going to see some conceptual software with mirroring action. Or a virtualization of Windows 8 in some form or another. Bright lights and black and white outlines galore!

Of course there's still always the idea that this could be a software release. Stay tuned as we continue down the rabbit hole with Microsoft presenting their next big thing. Have a peek at the timeline below as well to see what we've seen thus far as well as what we've had leaked, tipped, and plain-old delivered in full-on clear fashion. And wait for the fashion as well, folks, because this is a rather big-time high-design and fashion extravaganza of an event if ever we have seen one!
