Windows 8 Tablet from Samsung Coming in 2012 2H

Samsung will be launching a range of new tablets in the second half of 2012. The new tablets will run the Windows 8 operating system which is scheduled to launch in 2012.

The full details of what hardware will be used are not known at the moment although some hints of reusing some tweaked and altered versions of the Series 7 computer have been mentioned.

For those of you not aware of the Series 7, it is a tablet device with a slide out keyboard (pictured below) and is aimed at the enterprise user. With it having a physical keyboard and a tablet form factor, it’s ideal for those who want to switch between a multi-touch display in tablet mode or more of a laptop type of system.

Windows 8 was first revealed back in September and was received well in the media and amongst developers who began downloading it. The whole Windows 8 user interface is different than what we have seen before. It uses a Metro UI that makes using touch a lot easier.
