So, I apparently caught a cold last week. But to my great amusement, tonight at 18, I’m gonna stream the Microsoft BUILD conference. Tonight they will be unveiling the latest Win8 build in order to impress the hardware industry and woo all developers. Since I’ve been following the development for a while, I’d say these are my predictions:
#1 Micrososft will unveil a Tablet running Win8
It’s been rumored that Microsoft has been developing a tablet together with Samsung. And that it will be used for demo’ing Win8. Since this is all about trying to show all capabilities of the OS, I am anticipating a killer tablet.
#2 There can only be one UI
The Metro UI introduced in Windows Phone will not only be present on the mobile devices and Win8.. But also Xbox will now share the new interface design.
Yupp, the Windows 8 marketplace has already been announced. But, I believe they actually will have one final surprise. The appstore will run across all devices win8, windows mobile7 and Xbox!
Microsoft will have partnered up with Nvida and/or Qualcomm and will unveil new hardware that targets tablets and mobile devices.
Microsoft will be talking alot about mobility and they will show off Win8 by showing how fast it boots. Apperently it boots in about 7-8 seconds.
#6 Internet Explorer 10 and Bing
The capabilities of Bing within internet explorer will be demo’ed. But we will also get to see Microsoft showing of Office 365+.
