Microsoft and B&N To Announce Tablet Tomorrow???

Early rumors suggested that Microsoft would be revealing Windows 8/RT for ARM based tablets at tomorrow’s press event. But now, according to TechCrunch, the spontaneous nature of the June 18th press event has lead them to believe that Windows 8/RT will not be announced. Their sources say that what we will see, is the first fruits of the strategic partnership that was formed  between Microsoft and Barnes & Noble in April of this year. This tablet looks to be a direct competitor to hugely successful Kindle Fire and depending on its screen size, could also provide a foothold for Microsoft into the smaller sized tablet market. The tablet could also possess Xbox live streaming capabilities.

Whether tomorrow’s event centers around the unveiling  of Windows 8 RT devices or a new tablet produced by Microsoft and B&N, you can bet it’s going to be something you will not want to miss.

UPDATE: B&N denies involvement in today’s Microsoft event.
