Samsung and Microsoft will show off a Windows 8 tablet next week.

So says the Korea Economic Daily - by way of Agence France-Presse - which reported today that an industry mole said Samsung and Microsoft will demo the Windows 8 tablet at next week's Build developers' conference.

While Samsung's current tablets run Android, it does offer Windows Phone 7 handsets. It has produced Windows-based Tablet PCs in the past.

Windows 8 will be the first version of the Microsoft OS to support ARM processors as well as chips from Intel and AMD.

The new OS will also run WinPho 7 mobile apps, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said earlier this week.

Windows 8 will feature prominently at Build. The developers conference "will show you that Windows 8 changes everything", MS claims. ®
