Windows 8 To Demo At Next Week’s D9 Conference

We may be getting our first taste of Microsoft's much anticipated Windows 8 tablet OS interface very soon. We previously reported that a preview of the platform would likely happen in June. And indeed, Microsoft Windows chief, Steven Sinofsky, has just been confirmed to appear at next week's D9 Conference, where its rumored that he will demo the new tablet UI.

There has been a pattern of Microsoft introducing new technologies at the Wall Street Journal's D: All Things Digital Conference, with Windows 7 multitouch being introduced during the D conference in 2008. This year's conference will take place from May 31 to June 2 and it's believed that Sinofsky will present a preview of the Windows 8 Tablet experience.

There's a good chance that Microsoft may introduce the Windows 8 ARM-based tablets ahead of the full desktop release. It's said that the they are quite far along and could see Windows 8 tablets launch before the end of this year. Hopefully, Sinofsky will be able to clear up the "factually inaccurate and unfortunately misleading" statements about Windows 8 that Intel recently let slip.
