Microsoft to reveal tablet plansby

Microsoft was expected to unveil its own company-branded Windows 8 tablet PC on Monday, challenging Apple's iPad

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Microsoft Corp was set to host a press conference in Los Angeles on Monday during which the technology giant was expected to unveil a company-branded tablet PC.

According to people familiar with the matter, Microsoft's own tablet is expected to run the firm's latest operating system, Windows 8.

Such a move would position Microsoft to challenge rival Apple in the lucrative $79 billion tablet market. However, introducing its own tablet could also upset Microsoft's closest hardware partners including HP and Samsung.

More details were set to be revealed at Microsoft's press event scheduled for 3.30pm PST on Monday. Expectations were set high by the tone of the media invite sent out on Thursday:

"This will be a major Microsoft announcement - you will not want to miss it," the invite read.
