Microsoft to unveil new tablet on Monday - report

Will run on Windows RT

Microsoft is set to challenge Apple and Amazon's market dominance by unveiling a new tablet.


That's according to a rumour which first surfaced on The Wrap which claims said the tablet will be officially unveiled at an event on Monday June 18 in LA.

AllThingsD backs up the whispers, reporting that the device will supposedly run on Windows RT, a modified version of Windows 8 that makes use of ARM microprocessors.

At E3 Microsoft revealed SmartGlass, which allows users to seamlessly transfer data between mobiles, tablet and consoles.

Microsoft Game Studios pledged to support the newly-announced service with all of its future titles. It seems like the perfect opportunity to get into the tablet space.
