Windows 8

Acer, ASUS, and Toshiba will unveil Windows 8 tablets next week at Computex in Taipei, according to Bloomberg. The Acer tablet is said to be an Intel x86 unit, while the Toshiba and ASUS models will feature ARM chipsets from Texas Instruments and NVIDIA, respectively. Teasers released by ASUS leading up to the show suggest its tablet will be a dual-boot device running both Windows 8 and Android, or maybe two separate tablets.

The report also claims the ASUS tablet will feature a detachable keyboard, similar to its Transformer series of devices.

Qualcomm will also be at Computex, demonstrating a test device running Windows 8 on its Snapdragon ARM chipset.
