Microsoft in Line to Debut ARM Slates at CES?

Microsoft has made no secret of its interest in bringing a host of Windows-powered tablet computers to market. The company, widely expected to make a splash with new tablets (or slates, as Microsoft calls the form factor) at the Consumer Electronics Show next month, is now the subject of a new crop of rumors about a forthcoming mobile device to be powered by an ARM processor.

The rumors, however, suggest that Microsoft’s new ARM-powered slate won’t hit the market for roughly two years. Enterprise Mobile Today takes a look.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said last summer that launching computers powered by Windows is “job one.”

Perhaps it’s job two, as well.

According to published reports, Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) leader will demonstrate a slew of new Windows 7-based slate devices — built on Intel processors — during his keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas early next month. But recent reports suggest there will be more to the presentation.
