The new operating system will be optimized for PCs, tablets and “a variety of different form factors,” one of which it can be assumed will be the Windows Phone.
Despite Microsoft claiming no new name has been selected for the next Windows OS, Ballmer used the sobriquet "WIndows 8" in his speech.
“Windows 7 PCs will sell over 350 million units this year. We've done a lot in Windows 7 to improve customer satisfaction. We have a brand new user interface. We've added touch, and ink, and speech," stated Ballmer, "And yet, as we look forward to the next generation of Windows systems, which will come out next year, there's a whole lot more coming. As we progress through the year, you ought to expect to hear a lot about Windows 8. Windows 8 slates, tablets, PCs, a variety of different form factors.”
