Report: Microsoft Preparing Windows 8 Tablet [news.cnet.com]

Microsoft may be thinking of hitting the market with its own Windows 8-branded tablet by the end of 2012, according to sources cited by Taiwan's DigiTimes.

If the rumor eventually holds true, the company would create the tablet by partnering with Texas Instruments and various Taiwanese equipment manufacturers to supply the hardware.

In response to CNET's request for comment on the matter, a Microsoft spokesperson said that "we have nothing more to share at this time."

My guess is that they're just making a proof of concept device, just like the Window Phone 7 models they demoed, but never produced.
