Microsoft introduced a number of tablet concepts during a partner preview event earlier this week.
The software giant held a technical demonstration at Computex on Thursday to demonstrate Windows 8 to hardware partners. Mike Angiulo, corporate vice president of Windows Planning, Hardware and PC Ecosystem at Microsoft, demonstrated Windows 8 on a variety of tablets. Angiulo showed how Windows 8 works across x86 and ARM-based chips. Microsoft previously introduced a technology preview of its Windows ARM support by showing off an early build of Windows 8 at CES 2011. Microsoft is partnering with ARM-based manufactures NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments to produce new Tablet devices.
Angiulo shows off a number of Windows 8 ARM tablet concepts (see video below) and a more in depth demonstration of the new Windows 8 user interface. Microsoft also shows how the start button now activates the new start menu user interface on Windows 8.
