Toshiba, Asus and Acer tipped to show Windows 8 tablets this COMPUTEX, surprises no one

When we went to COMPUTEX last year, the show floor was absolutely covered in Android tablets. This year, it seems that the same will be true, with a key difference – a majority of the tablets shown during the show will bear Microsoft’s latest OS, Windows 8. According to a report in Bloomberg, a person familiar with the matter said that Acer, Asus and Toshiba would show their Windows 8 tablet offerings during the Taipei show, which will be running on different ARM chips. Unlike the PC space, there are numerous companies vying for mobile chip dominance, a list that includes current PC chip leader Intel, NVIDIA, Samsung, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments. Nevertheless, we’ll be on hand for COMPUTEX tomorrow and we’ll be trying to get our eyes on the devices listed above. Stay tuned folks.
