"SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Microsoft has shown off some tablets that run Windows.
Microsoft used the Antipodean leg of its Teched 2011 conference to show off what Windows-based tablets could look like. Microsoft's Jeff Johnson and Patrick Hevesi displayed several tablets but one device stood head and shoulders above others, a slim quad-core device.
Sadly the eyewitness didn't report whether Microsoft's quad-core tablet was using an x86 or ARM chip. Given that Intel has yet to launch a chip that really competes with ARM-based chips from vendors such as Qualcomm, it would be reasonable to think that the tablet hoisted aloft had an ARM-based chip."
