Hardware partners get a glimpse of Windows 8 at Computex

By / Senior Program Manager, Windows Insider Program

Earlier today, we shared a preview of the new user interface in Windows 8. There was also Windows activity happening halfway across the world in Taipei, Taiwan, at a big hardware show called Computex. There, Mike Angiulo, Corporate Vice President of Windows Planning, Hardware, and PC Ecosystem, met with hardware partners to show off Windows 8 and highlight how they can build devices that take advantage of the new user experience.

He showcased how Windows 8 will run on both x86 and ARM-based architectures on a variety of different prototypes including touch-centric hardware. If you recall, in January we announced that we would be working with chip makers such as AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments to support the next version of Windows. I can’t wait to see the array of incredible devices that our hardware partners will build for Windows 8.
