Microsoft Corporation is preparing to unveil its own slate at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January 2011, according to several media reports.
The project has yet not been officially announced by Microsoft, but market analysts believe that the new device from the software giant will rev up competition in the tablet market where Apple's iPad dominates.
New slate: upgrade over previous version?
Experts believe that the new tablet will be an improvement over Microsoft's earlier version which
fell short of the promises made by Steve Ballmer, the chief executive officer of the company.
In 2010, an HP model device was launched but it turned out to be business oriented machine designed for vertical market.
