That’s right, Microsoft’s mystery announcement could be just that…

Microsoft’s mysterious media event scheduled for tomorrow has generated a lot of speculation about what the software giant has up its sleeve, with many bets being placed on a new tablet to challenge Apple’s iPad.

Now we are hearing that while the tech titan is indeed expected to unveil a tablet, the new product is being developed in conjunction with Barnes & Noble and will focus on entertainment, according to a TechCrunch report. Another source says Xbox streaming is also on tap for the tablet. source cnetnews.com

Remember Microsoft Glass? Well that will most likely be included at launch. As well as the fact that most tables aren’t the best at rendering webpages… Windows 8 will have no such problem. I look forward to reading some reviews and I will keep you all in the loop as well!
