    Will Microsoft show its own Windows 8 tablet on Monday?

    Redmond's "major announcement" may be just around the corner, but mum's the word on Microsoft's lips. Still, that hasn't kept the rumor mill from churning, and the latest is just in: Microsoft's next slate may be built in-house. According to sources from The Wrap and AllThingsD, the firm is planning to introduce a Microsoft-built tablet, undercutting the efforts of third-party builders to more directly compete with the iPad. Rumors flit back and forth between the slate running the ARM optimizedWindows RT, the full on x86 version of Windows 8 or both, separated by different models. Is Microsoft building its own army of tablets to go toe-to-toe with the iPad? We'll find out Monday -- hopefully, whatever the firm announces will last longer than the Zune.

    I am praying, ( hoping against hope ) that they showcase their own tablet !!!
    I now want the hardware makers and the assemblers to feel the heat !! enough of those tablets which are just for browsing ans stuff !!
    now that I have used Windows 8, I think its time to go mainstream !!

    Blast the competitions !!

    Productivity is essential for tablets to keep growing and moving ahead, at the moment they are just a novelty.

    really looking forward to these...specially the RT...if done well, it could really change the outlook of a tablet. As moz said, it would really add productivity to tablets..I dont mind seeing cheaper dual core versions as well, sure someone will launch them too..
