KOREAN ELECTRONICS MAKER Samsung has partnered with Microsoft to make a tablet that runs Windows 8.
According to the Korea Economic Daily the Windows 8 tablet will be revealed at Microsoft's BUILD developers' conference in California next week, 13-16 September.
A source told the Korea Economic Daily, "This new product manufactured by Samsung will be the company's first collaboration with Microsoft in its hardware devices."
Samsung is embroiled in a global patent battle with Apple over its Galaxy tablet and smartphone devices.
Microsoft launched its Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system in November 2010 and as yet, its market share has reached just 1.7 per cent in the UK. µ
