Microsoft plans to take on iPad with British chips powering most worlds' smartphonesJun 16, 4:48 pm
London, June 16 (ANI): Software giant Microsoft's much rumoured tablet, that would run the new version of its operating system, will include same British-designed microchips that power most of the world's smartphones and the iPad.According to a report, chips made by Arm Holdings (ARM) will power the new line of tablets that would run the highly anticipated Windows 8 software.The report emerges as Microsoft is planning to conduct a 'super-secret' event in Los Angeles on Monday.But ARM, the Cambridge-based firm, said not even it knows what will be unveiled, with the event surrounded by unusually strict secrecy for Microsoft.Warren East, ARM's chief executive said that he hadn't been told what to expect from the big reveal, which will take place in Los Angeles."We've heard about this event on Monday but we don't know anything more about it," The Telegraph quoted East, as saying."It's a Microsoft product and they're responsible for development and marketing. We haven't been involved," he said."We obviously welcome Microsoft moving to ARM architecture. Windows will be an exciting new market for us," he added.Some reports ahead of Monday's announcement have suggested Microsoft will introduce an own-brand tablet before licensing the software to third parties manufacturers such as HP, in an echo of the way Google makes its own "Nexus" Android smartphones.
