Microsoft will release new hardware at Computex

Written by Nick Farrell

Mini me expected

Software King of the World, Microsoft penned a short teaser post on Twitter claiming that Computex would witness the unveiling of several new Windows devices. Word on the street is that Redmond might unveil the new Surface Mini, but it is believed that will be the company’s partners who will attract all the headlines.

Redmond’s chums are expected to have a strong showing at Computex. Toshiba, which has recently unveiled its first Windows 8.1 with Bing tablet. The company has recently announced that manufacturers would be provided with a new Windows 8.1 SKU specifically designed to help them build more affordable products that would boost the adoption of its modern operating system.

Windows 8.1 with Bing doesn't bring too many differences as compared to the standard Windows 8.1 version, but features Bing as the default search engine in Internet Explorer. Users are still allowed to choose Google or any other search engine if they wish, Microsoft said.

Previous reports indicated that some could retail for less than $250 in order to compete with low-cost Android tablets.
