New York Times indicating Windows 8 might be shown at CES – I call BS

I am definitely not buying this.

I came across this article today from the NYT.

It starts pretty casually..

Next month, at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Microsoft will give it another try, presenting a slew of new slates that it hopes will offer some competition to the Apple iPad, which has quickly become the leader in this market.

According to people familiar with Microsoft’s plans, Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s chief executive, is expected to announce a number of these devices when he takes the stage at C.E.S., showcasing devices built by Samsung and Dell, among a number of other manufacturing partners.

And at the end of the article, real casually:

Another person with knowledge of Microsoft’s plans said Steve Ballmer may demonstrate a tablet and other companion devices running the next operating system, Windows 8.

Really?

See how casual that was? Steve may demonstrate a TABLET with Windows 8 on it. A Tablet?

I will look forward to CES but will be SHOCKED if there is any type of demo with Windows 8 in ANY form there.
