Slash Gear: Samsung promises “groundbreaking” Windows 8 device reveal on October 15th
The folks at Samsung have sent out invites to a press event in which they’ll be revealing a set of new Windows 8-toting devices, not least of all notebooks with ultra-thin bodies and touchscreen displays. This event is set to take place at a museum, of all places, with “Framing the Future” as their key catchphrase. Here we’ll be seeing Samsung go all-in for Microsoft’s next-generation operating system, you can bet!
This event will certainly be home to a selection of never-before-seen devices that work with Windows 8 and perhaps give new glimpses of how they’ll be working with Windows Phone 8 as well. With the couple of images included in the invite you see above, we’re thinking thinness is on the table without a doubt – this is more than likely the location and time of the final Samsung Series 9 notebook reveal. The gray and blue colorscape presented here makes us feel as though we’re also already in a museum before we arrive.
What we’re also expecting is an even more refined presentation than Samsung has been presenting as of late. As the brand grows stronger, so too do they continue to present in a simpler way – here in a location we’re sure will play up their devices as fine art. Or fine design, as it were, with unibody casing, all-metal bodies, sharp lines, all that good stuff.
This is also just one of many Windows 8 – aimed events that will be popping up here on SlashGear over the next few weeks and months. Stay tuned to our Windows 8 tag hub to see all the operating system has to offer! Also be sure to keep your note tuned to the Samsung tag for all the new notebooks and PCs they’ve got up for grabs, too!
