Rumour: Windows 8 Appearance During Ballmer’s Keynote

WinRumors is reporting that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will reveal parts of Windows 8 during tomorrow night’s CES keynote, mainly related to future slates they have planned. In addition, there should be new Windows Phone and Xbox announcements.

According to WinRumors, their strategy for revealing Windows 8 will probably be similar to what they did for Windows 7, where they revealed a few UI elements at All Things D, then unveiled everything months later. And further proving that Microsoft is interested in ARM-based processors, Nvidia, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments are all on board for Windows 8-optimized products. Paired with their rumoured set-top box, tomorrow night should be interesting. [WinRumors via TechMeme]
