In an interview with Wired UK, Microsoft Vice President Frank Shaw told the magazine that CEO Steve Ballmer has a massive 80-inch touchscreen Windows 8 tablet hanging in his office.According to Shaw, this is Ballmer’s primary computing device.
Even more interesting, though, is Shaw says one of Microsoft’s Windows 8 partners will sell the 80-inch tablet.
Microsoft has a very different philosophy when it comes to tablet computing. The company believes everything should have a touchscreen. That means you’re going to a see a lot of crazy form factors, not just massive displays, but also hybrid laptop/tablets.
Microsoft’s Windows boss Steven Sinofsky gave a few hints at what Windows 8 devices will look like in his recent “Building Windows 8” blog post.
