Windows on ARMMicrosoft's Windows 8 operating system will go down in history as the first version of the software to be optimized for tablets, and this may happen sooner than some may think. According to a new rumor from Digitimes, ViewSonic will have the Windows 8 tablet out as early as the second quarter of this year.


What this means is that a 10-inch product will be launched at some point during the April-June period of 2012.

The tablet will possess a high-resolution display and probably an ARM chip. It will succeed the ViewPad 10, which has both Windows 7 and Android support.

The revelation was attributed to Max Liu, product marketing director of ViewSonic Asia Pacific.

Whether or not this rumor has a grain of truth is unclear, something that will probably last until the product actually launches (or doesn't).

Either way, a Windows 8 device is only one of the gadgets that ViewSonic has in the pipeline.
