Samsung to launch Windows 8 tablet mid 2012

Samsung gets ready for a bit of Windows 8 tablet action

Microsoft is yet to announce the release date for its Windows 8 OS, but it looks like Samung is set to join the likes of Asus in launching its own Windows 8 tablet. The Korean electronics giant has confirmed that its first Windows 8 tablet efforts will be available in the second half of 2012.

According to reports from Bloomberg, Samsung's head of sales and marketing has given the official nod to the Windows 8-toting tab, that will apparently take on the guise of a modified version of the Series 7 computer.

Aimed at the business end of the market, Sammy's tablet sounds ideal for those with a penchant for spreadsheets, documents and presentations, but who seek the portability tablets provide.

Information hasn't reached official status as yet, but we'll be keeping our ears to the ground for all the latest on Samsung's Windows 8 tablet.
