Microsoft could take the fight directly to Apple with its own Windows 8 tablet

Could the Redmond software giant take the fight directly to Apple in the tablet arena?

The latest rumours on the interwebs point towards Microsoft unveiling its very own tablet, if the mysterious sources of All Things D and The Wrap are to be believed.

The Microsoft-forged tablet is expected to be revealed on June 18th in Los Angeles, and it doesn't take a genius to predict that it'll be running Windows 8.

So, is Microsoft really going to aim straight for the iPad's jugular? Or could we see the (highly unlikely) ressurection of the ill-fated Zune? Tune in next week to find out.
