Microsoft took to the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week, showcasing the latest Windows 8 hardware.

The software giant revealed products ranging from chipsets, to materials, hinges, touch panels, rotating displays, plus new designs and new capabilities in Windows 8.

“Touch and other new capabilities in Windows 8 are powering the latest hardware innovations coming from our OEM partners,” Microsoft said.

“Together we are delivering interactive new experiences through devices and services that deliver on customers’ need for constant connectivity, mobility and flexibility.

“The PCs and devices we’re seeing come to market are increasingly mobile and much more powerful.

“When Windows 8 launched in October, we talked about 1,000 PCs and devices that had been certified for Windows 8.

“There are now more than 1,500 with more expected in the weeks and months to come. The breadth of innovation continues as our hardware partners deliver new Windows 8 devices and experiences that are tuned for play and work.”
