Microsoft has sent out invitations for an even of theirs on 18.06, which has, of course, managed to cause a lot of online speculations about what we’re going to see unveiled. The main reason for this is the fact, that this event is going to be held just a couple of days before another even, at which the software giant is going to reveal the next version of their mobile platform – Windows Phone 8. According to some, at the earlier event Microsoft are going to focus on Windows RT – a version of the OS, which is going to run on devices with ARM chips, and they’re going to use it as a chance to tell us more about the apps and services, which are going to be available for such devices.

Meanwhile, though, another rumors has appeared online, claiming that Microsoft is about to announce a tablet of their own, with which to directly compete with the other manufacturers on the market. The time could actually hardly be more convenient – this is pretty much the best moment to reveal such a device, just before the Google I/O conference, at which Google is also expected to announce a tablet of theirs. It’s also worth mentioning, that Microsoft recently made a deal with Barnes&Noble, around which a lot of Windows Phone cross-references were made and a device was even mentioned, bearing the name Microsoft Reader.
